    Steamboat Operation Questions

    Hello all!

    I am writing a feature film script and I have some questions about steamboat operations, specifically what methods are/were used to free steamboats from sandbars or from other shallow-water instances where they ran aground?

    Are there any situations or accounts that can shed light on the methods crews used to free boats from the river bottoms?

    Thank you all.

    Hello Joseph,

    just a quick hint - here is a thread where this question has been discussed quite nicely and you might find the answers there :-)

    And here is some more: https://www.hmdb.org/m.asp?m=161580
