    I just found this local image of a small steamboat on a pond. I've tried doing a little research, but haven't found any images of similar boats. Does anyone have any idea who would have made the boat or the particular model of the boat?

      Seems I have seen this boat labeled as being on a NY lake. Can't remember why it was noteworthy.

      Interesting. This came with a collection of images taken by a family vacationing at a cabin on Cobbett's Pond, so I do believe this was taken on the pond. I have never seen another image of this boat on the pond, nor have I been able to photo match the dock.

      There was a story behind it if I'm right. I've lived around boats for 45 yrs & you get to recognize individual ones.

      Oroy, is that you on the pier, or did you take the picture ? I seem to remember most, the reverse prow(pointed end) & the almost ketch-like stern(dull end).

      Still stuck on Uncle Sambo's Plantation with Brrrrr(!) moving in. Guess members of the Donner Party felt like this at the beginning. Probably going to have to ship my scooter from here now.

      Strange that nobody has mentioned the flying saucer !
