There are a surprising number of steam launches in the greater Puget Sound area. They used to have an annual steam weekend at the harbor in Blaine. I don't know if they still do this. My wife and I went one year. As I recall most or all of the launches, despite looking original, were not. The steam plants are available new.

In addition to the steam launches they also had an original steam-powered, horse-drawn fire engine fired up and throwing water a surprisingly great distance, some steam-powered logging equipment and machine-shop tools, and a couple of steam-powered cars (restored).
