Mac you are so funny.You should have your own show.Perhaps replace Imus and it would be called the Mac Daddy Show.
How's that paddlewheeler project doing?
Someday bring that up to New York and we'll have lunch and some Glenfiddich.Have a stupendous day.

Paddlewheeler iz on hold.
I hav lots of leftover bracing ply etc from the new house to make a 7piece bolttogether twin hull paddlewheeler, but would be very heavy, and the lake iz now full again but the trout wont be pan sized for a couple of year, so mightbe later.
But i hav 2 or 3 revolutionary ideas (bad word) for the paddlewheel dezign and drive setup, and really the whole thing would be for the fun of building rather than so much for uzing.

Anyhow, if i fit a GPS then who knows u might be able to take a pix of me paddling by the statue of liberty one day.

That gps is a great idea Mac.I remember once you said you liked to go in the ocean and navigate by the stars.That is ok,but your getting old and might need a backup just incase.
When you go by the Liberty statue you can call me on your cell phone the exact time you want a picture and i will take it then.Then dock the wheeler and we will go for lunch.
Until then remember to wear a life preserver that water is deep.

Mac, I took a few rides on the Tahoo Queen and the M.S. Dixie II which may be the last commercial operating paddle wheelers in the states?... SS (http://www.zephyrcove.com/cruises.aspx)
Also took a ride on the Cape May Ferry boat, the last steam Recip in commercial operation.
When I was a kid we took the SS. Canadiana, another steam recip
across Lake Erie to the Crystal Beach, Ont. amusement park. The engine room was open to view (but not enter)....It was fascinating stuff for a kid....

.... a couple of decades later I was studying steam recip engines...as they were still on the Coast Guard exam for an engineer's license.

We used to hav 2 proper old style paddlewheelers operating akross the lake here, but not steamdriven.
Us kids (swimming) would hang down off the back for a while when they were leaving, and the conductor would havta skrape us off.

They got one a few years ago and were nearly finished doing it up (in a shed at the lake) but it burned in a fire (what else). I heard they were going to build it again from skratch if they found money.

Blue!
I just looked up the invention of the paddle wheeler, guessing maybe mid 1800s, an by an American.....and was I way off.
"1783 First practical steamboat demonstrated by Marquis Claude Francois de Jouffroy d'Abbans - a paddle wheel steamboat"
