Want to buy a sternwheeler? The P.A. Denny is for sale , according to the Charleston Gazette. All you need is $75k for the boat and $225k for repairs.

I think I'm a little shy...that's a good bit of change. I hope someone can see their way to buying it, though. I've been on the boat a few times. Good memories.

The Barbara H. is on eBay for $75,000 as well. Was listed for 10 days, no bids. Now re-listed, still no bids.

Is that the former Donald B? I have photos of that boat that I took when it was a working sternbwheeler in the Maysville, Ky., area. In one, it's working around a sand barge and equipment for transferring sand from barge to truck. I think I took it on June 30, 1986.

Now we know how much it costs to buy an old sternwheeler. I'm not sure I want to know how much insurance, maintenance, insurance, licenses and such cost. No need to kill a fantasy right away.
