"The Clyde is our family boat, my son Frank and I built her over the past 11 years. She is diesel powered, 48' long and is docked at the Alma Marina in Alma Wisconsin. Named after the Rafter Clyde, the first iron hulled steamboat on the western rivers. My grandfather Frank Newcomb was pilot on her, back in the early 1900's." - E.C.Newcomb (email)
