Re: Moving right along at a warp speed of four miles per hour?
- Morning all!
My wife and I will be heading down to where the skeleton of the
North River lies. The Hudson River Maritime Museum is holding a
Steamboat meet AUG 5th & 6th. We're going to meet Carl Krieges kotte
his wife & steam launch.
This week I made contact with the president of the Rumseian Society.
It's a group in Shepardstown, WV that is to James Rumsey as the
Saugerties Fulton Steamboat Foundation is/was to Fulton. They built
a replica of Rumsey's steamboat that plied the waters of the Patomac
back in 1787. They are scheduled to bring their boat to the Clermont
Celebration on the Hudson next year.
I just rec'd an E-mail saying that Nick Blanton & Jay Hurley are
planning to come up from WV to the HRMM steamboat meet this weekend
to meet Carl & me. The fellowship amongst the steamboaters is simply
amazing! I have lterally heard from people from all over the world
who have expressed interest in the North River Project.
RE: The pop-pop North River. I have to track down my paper model kit
of the North River. It somehow got misplaced. At your suggestion I
will use it for a template for the tin version.
WATCH FOR MORE!
