Sternwheel Launch Alligator

The Sternwheeler Alligator. From THE RUDDER

From the pages of the May & June 1911 issues of “The Rudder” Magazine comes a really unusual vessel – the Alligator, a 42 ft. long, (overall) 8ft. 11 in. beam sternwheel pleasure boat designed by R. M. Haddock. She is really just a big flat-bottomed skiff with sternwheel propulsion. Alligator has a fully enclosed cabin with sleeping accommodations for three, as well as kitchen and toilet facilities. (buy a copy of the article here)
