I posted just a minute ago about painting caprails and in the follow-up post I posted a photo of my first Los Angeles boat - and it dawned on me that I should post it here... it is/was an interesting boat...

I'll try to link to my caveman era web page on the boat...

1982 Monomoy (re-reading my write-up about my experience with the monomoy... it has all come true...)

Sadly it was not for me... and with all due respect to our wood hull brothers and sisters - wood was not for me either.

I do still have the model though...

CarlinLA,
I like your two blade prop. Was it fairly smooth? Should be very efficient if the pich and dia were well chosen.
Was the Volvo sea water cooled?

I count three blades. It's just that the third is camouflaged with all the barnacles

BTW, I would also be interested to hear from true experience spinning a 2-bladed prop with a well streamlined keel, to know if the horror stories told in all the books are true.

Id say the thing on the bow is used to counter balance the boat when the fire canon hoses are been deployed that round hull would be easy to tip with a little force from the fire hoses

or maybe like a keel on a sailboat if it is fixed (the tug looks flat bottomed), it moves the pivot point to the very bow allowing sharper turning radius.

I was told that it is a tugboat with some exquisitely expensive, German designed, engineered and built 360 degree pod drives and the "big thing" on the bow is simply to protect the pod drives

Makes sure you know when you run aground... before whole hull gets entailed.

I thought that my namesake boat would be an interesting addition to this thread.

SS KOKANEE
Year Built: 1896
Location: Nelson Shipyard
Company: Columbia & Kootenay Steam Navigation Company
Year Withdrawn: 1923
Notes: Proudly displayed the set of deer antlers on its pilothouse symbolizing its record as the fastest sternwheeler on the lake.

Do you know top speed for fastest sternwheeler?

The SS Kokanee did just under 16 knots.

Art - Here's a bit of history.

The largest sternwheeler on the lake when it was launched in 1896, the SS Kokanee was also the fastest. Built in Nelson by James Bulger for the Columbia & Kootenay Steam Navigation Company, at a cost of $22 000, the SS Kokanee launched on April 7, 1896.

Powered by a second-hand engine manufactured in 1877 and taken from the ill-fated SS Columbia, (a sternwheeler from the Arrow Lakes route that burnt in 1894,) the SS Kokanee attained impressive speeds. Its trial run in May of 1896 was a race with the SS International, with the newly launched boat attaining speeds of 29 km/hr (18 m/hr). For the Nelson - Kaslo run, it set a speed record of two hours, 47 minutes, including three stops along the way. The SS Kokanee was the fastest boat on the water until the launch of the SS Kaslo, which held the title until it sank in 1910.

The SS Kokanee was well-appointed with a dining room with three tables and seating for 18, 11 staterooms capable of sleeping 33 and room for 200 passengers. A wood settee in the men's smoking room followed the curve of the bow of the boat. There were oak chairs, card tables and the requisite brass spittoons. The ladies' parlor was decorated with rocking chairs, carpets, an upholstered curved settee and curtains, providing a luxurious surrounding in the midst of the wilds of British Columbia.

The favoured boat of the city of Nelson, it worked the Nelson - Kaslo run from 1896 to 1913. Replaced then by the SS Kuskanook, it worked relief until 1917. In 1923, it was partially dismantled; the boilers and paddlebox removed and was sold to Richard Deane for $848. It was then towed to Deanshaven, south of Riondel, to be used as a fishing lodge. The SS Kokanee sank at Deanshaven in November 1932.


Another attachment I have for the boat is that I used to own the house that the Captain of the SS Kokanee built. I saved it from demolition and renovated it, keeping all the original style and fittings. It was a bit like rebuilding a 100 year old boat; a labour of love.

If you're interested, here's a site that goes into more of the history of the development of the sternwheelers. http://touchstonesnelson.ca/exhibiti...rs/en/history/
