    Just been thinking, my paddleboat experiences go back even further than I said in my previous post. I was regularly being taken on Campbell's fleet out of Barry, to Minehead, Weston and Ilfracombe back pre WW2. There's a photo floating around somewhere of me in a pushchair on Birkbeck pier in Weston having just landed from a paddle steamer. I was probably about three at the time.

    Memories, memories! Nerys

    When the winds before the rain, soon you may make sail again, but when the rain's before the wind, tops'l sheets and halyards mind

    I visited the Ticonderoga years ago, I forgot she had a walking beam.
    Thanks for the reminder.
    They were in California as well.
    And of course, the Mt Washington was on Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire.
    I'm sure they were in many other places as well.

    The Shelburne museum has the the SS Ticonderoga. She use to run Lake Champlain during the summer. I saw her about 25 years ago. Has a true walking beam engine.

    Hi Nerys,
    I just took the virtual tour of the Medway Queen๐Ÿ‘
    Another wonderful old Side Wheeler.
    It is great that you were on both Ships.
    I'm very happy that they are being restored and preserved.
    We used to have Walking Beam Side Wheelers on the Hudson River. But unfortunately, none have survived.

    So far my collection resembles "The Island of Misfit Toys". I've picked up several boats that are old builds and have been neglected. I'm giving them the TLC they need, hoping to bring them back to their former glory. Once I get enough practice/ experience I intend to take on a full build.
