Steamboat SOLD

Post by mtnman » Sun Jan 12, 2020 2:05 am

So was it someone here that got the deal of the century? Thursday 1/9 Mecum auctions sold a 50" steam boat project complete with engines and boiler. No reserve. It brought a whopping $4,125 I didn't find out until the 10th a day late. Go to this web address for lots of pictures ... steamboat/

Ah, yes. That works out to less than $100/inch! Very good.

On a less facetious note, there is still a 32 foot hull with a new boiler and a very nice engine sitting in Olympia, WA. It's been parked on its shipping pallet for over a year. I suspect that the first 10K would walk away with it.
