FDR's Potomac

Howdy,

Doing the sea trial today for "hopefully" my new boat and we came upon this historic and classic yacht. President Roosevelt used this during his presidency. It's my understanding one of the smokestacks is actually an elevator. Was told Elvis owned this, too. I haven't done my research yet. I guess it's a tourist attraction now out of Jack London square in Oakland.

Few electrical things are broken. Most notably the temp gauges. She didn't show any signs of overheating. Handles amazing and sounded good, no smoke.
