Here are a couple of videos from our visit to the 2017 Lees Mills meet.

We steamed many hours on the lake and had very nice weather.

How many steamboat at Lee's mill this year?

I like how the engine is sitting a little below the deck in your video. I have an odd drive situation and it's nice to see elegant solutions to cover propellor shafting/machinery. thumbs up.

Hi all,

Our steam launch "Hope" is currently for sale. She is listed with a local (Rhode Island) broker and can be found here:

http://www.northstaryachtsales.com/boat ... unch/2389/

The boat is in top notch condition and runs well. She is commissioned for the year but lives on the trailer in the boathouse.

Reason for selling.......we decided to have a baby, our son was born early this year. Our priorities have changed and steamboating is no longer practical for us.

If interested feel free to contact me or my broker. Remember, an asking price is only just that. I want someone to enjoy this launch like we have.

Cheers,

Alex
