Love your boat!
We have a much smaller version.
I think it is interesting how men are always
interested in the outside and the engine
compartments of boats, when what women want to
see is the inside. It would be great to see how
the insides of the Riverqueen differs from boat
to boat and good to get ideas on how people have
decorated, so If you have any inside pics of the
boats on your web it would be great to see!
We have had similar experiences with our boat as
it seemed you have. We too sandblasted our boat
after purchasing and also found water streaming
out of many holes in the bottom - we have since
had a welder replace several plates on the
We also have a Kohler generator that has had
contineous maintenance and we have a couple of
parts missing so my husband still has to keep it
running with a clamp and a pencil. If you know
of any great spare parts web sites to go to, we
would appreciate getting some addresses.
Anyway, without going into our 8 year experience
with our Riverqueen, I will just attach a few
pics of the boat that we are also very proud of.
A few years ago we never saw another RQ in our
area, but now there are probably 3-6 on the
upper St. Croix River between MN and WI.
Hope you enjoy the pics - feel free to publish
