Ohio River Museum

  Here was a display where they are building a boat. I took this for Alex so he can see one of the ways that a boat is built. This one is being built by hanging is from a frame to keep everything in line. It seems to me that it would be a lot easier to work off of a frame on the floor - but what do I know.

They have the W.P. Snyder on display there in the River (Muskingham River). It was a steam powered sternwheel river tow boat built around 1930 if memory serves me. Isn't she a great looking lady!

Before we left the W.P. Snyder, Connie got to feed the carp from a baby bottle. What an experience! I'm not suer who enjoyed it more, me, Connie or the carp.
