Must sell due to ill health. Check the classified's for Steamboat for sale OT
Sorry to hear of your ill health. I hope everything turns out OK.
I am pleased that you have had and enjoyed the steamboat, but saddened very much that your health forces you to sell it. Take care my friend.
There's a great YouTube video of the Frank's steam launch in action. It is a fabulous machine. Check it out.
Frank, your old friend and I hope you're feeling better soon.
If someone does end up buying this ....
I will be dropping off in Long Beach, CA at the port in about (2) weeks - subject to weather.
It might fit inside my enclosed trailer.

Below is a picture of the boiler with approximately 40 hours total time on it and always on distilled water recycled through a condenser.
Contrary to popular belief, Distilled water is not the best thing to put in a boiler, it actually causes shell pitting!
Very nice plumbing job there, everything about your boat looks top-notch. Wish I still had mine!
Actually, I have the remains of the S L Sinbad, but I think the hull is economically too far gone now to save--and it's more a powerboat hull than a steamboat hull, all the machinery went into the Mexican "African Queen" replica a few decades ago.
I have almost enough stuff around here to replace the original though.
