Somehow the forum "program" is limiting Rainer's images to 400 pixel width when they are 700 pixels wide. Help from the webmaster?

Rainer,

Emma is looking superb. She is one of the steamboats that inspired me to get in to this great hobby.

Thanks, Ron

Emma is a beautiful boat. I have looked at your web pages about her, and if you ever said why you chose the name Emma, I missed it. Do you just like the name, or is there a real Emma you named her after?

As I was a child there was a puppet story in the TV. It is the story of a lokomotive called Emma with Lukas the engineer and Jim Knopf (Jim Button) his friend having adventures around the world. Emma can fly (by magnets on a rod in front of her , swim and go without tracks.

As I looked for a boats name I tried to avoid "usual" names like "Vulcan", "Little Oven", "Fire in the Night", "Sunset over River" etc. I also do not like to name a boat after my wife with an index of the wife/boat like "Claudia 6".

So I remembered the locomotive Emma - additional the name Emma for me ever was the name of a women who know what to do with a sense for practical things - like a old washerwoman or other down-to-earth business. And Emma is not a fancy boat - it's more a working horse with reliable technique and steel deck - no mahogany.

Later as my daughter Rebecca was born I had the opportunity to name her after my boat because the name Emma became popular in 2002 here in Germany.
