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?

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.
Has the old canal that goes to the waterfront been restored to operation now?

Re: 1890-1910 50' Sidewheeler

Hi Carl, I wasn't able to easily navigate the historical society website on my phone, but a quick online image search revealed some grainy photos of her. I think there was a step over the shaft. Though, in those days maybe nothing. Back then they tended to rely solely on a person's common sense and ...
