14 ft. Plywood Boat

A 14 ft. Plywood Boat built by Mr. French. He had a 2 x 2 steam Marine in it and made the boiler himself. He says, 'I'm not a water bird so I sold the boat and now want to put the engine on wheels.

I started to run an engine back in 1916. I run a steam engine until 1948 then I traded for a 28x50 Hart-Parr tractor. My brother and I have a picture of my father's first outfit - a 12 hp Rumely engine and a Geiser separator.
