A visit to Vergennes, Vermont isn't complete without a visit to the public docks at the base of the waterfall on Otter Creek. The water was really high when we visited so there weren't too many boats, and we were surprised to see these two steam powered launches. We later found out there was a steamboat meet along the Otter Creek that day, and saw several more as we drove down along the shore.
As beautiful and traditional as these boats are, I am glad that our Sashay isn't as complex. All we do is turn the key and hit the ignition button, and off we go with the little Yanmar diesel engine chugging away.
