I just backed up this guestbook to my server. To see recent questions, click on the link above. If you are a steaboat buff, feel free to write to people who post at my site. I depend on the steamboat community, since there's no way i can keep up with the volume of questions on my own!

Someone sent me this question, but their return email address didn't work. I'll post it here in hopes that the person will find it:::::::Q. (TJ Lilliman wrote): Do you know what boat was used in the movie Maverick? Is it real?are there details of it on the web. Many thanks. T.J.::::A. (Answer supplied by Dave Thomson): It was the old sternwheeler Portland which is based on the Columbia River in Portland, Oregon.::They added twin stacks so there were three stacks all together redundant! Also lots of gingerbread to make it look like an old packet boat. The interior set (which was too big to actually fit inside the boat) was on a sound stage at Warner Bros. studio in Burbank. A German entrepeneur bought the set, dismantled it and shipped it to Germany where it became the interior of a restaurant.::I've got a couple of color photos of the boat as it appearedin the Maverick movie . . . but where they are exactly I'm not sure.::Best,::Dave::

My Dad, Gene Hunt (genefhunt@cs.com), 80 years old and a local Cincinnati artist and modeler, is building a replica of the old paddelwheeler - Delta Queen. He's made almost all the parts by hand, some so small they require a magnifying glass and small tweezers to build. It's a beauty. I'd like to know a source for publishing some photos and doign a story about Gene Hunt and his model.::::Thanks,::::Terry Hunt::303-770-8123::terryhunt@sprynet.com

I inherited a3 foot tall antique glass vase from an Aunt. She told me it came across the atlantic aboard a side-wheeler steam boat. Was there a time in history when ships of this type made trans-atlantic crossings?

Dear steamboat fanciers,::I obtained your email addresses from the steamboat site on which you are::registered. The owner of the site said, on the site, to feel free to::contact those listed. So I am. I have listed an item on Ebay which::comes from, or is associated with, one of the Lake Sunapee steamboats,::the Edmund Burke. I have looked through all my Sunapee steamboat::postcards from that era and cannot figure out what exactly it is but on::Ebay have done my best to describe it. Pictures help. The item# is::3732472128. It is a large - 7 feet wide, semi-circular wood and glass::sign from the Edmund Burke which sank in 1891. Any input would be::valued. Thank you all.::Sincerely,::peta at hopibooks

My great-great-great-grandfather, Fleury Generelly, traveled with his children beginning in Feb 1820 from New Orleans to St. Louis on the "Maid of Orleans". How might I learn of that boat's history, ownership, and schedule, and are there passenger manifests that can be researched?

Great site. I am trying to find information of the steamboat "Silver Wave" that worked the waters of the White and Red Rivers during the Civil War. It was owned by my great grandfather Nathaniel Boswell and captured by General Nathaniel Banks. I think I have a picture of it. Keep up the good work::Bob

I acquired a book published in 1822 that lists, among other things, all steamboats in service on the Ohio and Mississippi up to that time, along with build dates and wreck/scrap dates for most. Is this info well-known, or should I be posting it somewhere?
