We have a riverboat up in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania that operates during the warmer seasons, the "Pride of the Susquehanna."



The boat itself was constructed in 1988 as a community project. According to the riverboat's website, it is a true paddle-wheel boat as the wheels are its only source of propulsion and steering, no rudders or props hidden anywhere. Supposedly only one of six authentic paddle-wheel boats operating in the United States?

My fiancee and I considered being married on the boat. I'm sure it would have been an amusing ceremony, but we decided to go a different route.


Does the Millersburg Ferry still operate on the Susquehanna River?  http://www.thesteampunkempire.com/group/riverboats/forum/topics/millersburg-ferry-susquehanna-river-pa

Yes, the Millersburg Ferry is still in operation, a day trip that is on my to-do list. www.millersburgferry.org/

According to their website, this year is the ferry's 200th anniversary, so I may have to go take a ride sooner than later.

A most excellent idea, perhaps I shall. Shame I cannot entice the future Mrs. to join me in adorning similar apparel, she will most likely hide behind the camera.

I see they've made a side-wheeler, which looks more like a Murray riverboat.
