Re: Steaming Season

Another day out on "Persistance"
Spotted some of Lionel Connel's neighbors on the water, ships heading out to sea, and pirates!

Re: Steaming Season

Re: 1902 Rochester steam launch - Glory Days (Norwalk, CT)

Welcome to the forum. Do you have more details on the length, breadth, hull construction, boiler and engine makes/models/types, as well as any more pictures of the exterior and interior? All those details could help in tracking down the boat... Sometimes these get parted out or converted to a differ...

Re: Steam Launch "JJ"

Quite a powerhouse! JJ could be a serious work boat with that boiler/engine combination. I see the Washington State (USA) registration numbers, but cannot see if the other two steam launches are also WA State. Location? Anyone know? Palm trees make me think NOT in the lower Skagit River, WA. Sure m...

Yes. She sure hauls the mail with that power plant.
The boiler is a B&W style watertube built by Andrew VanLuenen of Washington state.

Re: Hello from Montreal

Welcome to the forum! I love Montreal, all the beautiful buildings, and history. My mother grew up in St-Bruno-De-Montaville. I spent every summer out there visiting my Grandma and Granddad.

Re: Oil burner consumption
