    Interesting eBay find!

    Paddle Wheel Stern Wheeler Steam Ship River Boat Prop - eBay (item 180441528300 end time Aug-01-10 19:02:35 PDT)

    Found this while browsing ebay. Anybody recognize the boat he says its from or have any more information. The shaft has "Link Belt" cast into it. I had no idea they made sternwheeler components!

      I happened to see this same item on ebay during the winter. I have included a photo of the ferry EVELYN that this wheel supposedly came off of.

      Link belt is a general manufacturer of power and drivetrain equipment. Along with cog gears, they also made journal and roller bearings. The bearings on the BARBARA H's 50 foot drive shaft, that powers the paddlewheel, are Link Belt bearings.
