Howdy, Rebel. There are two sets of numbers for this vessel. There is a "customs measure" of 350 x 37.4 x 8.4, which I presume are the hull perpendiculars based on keel length, and a more detailed set of specifications. The 365 ft length is the length on deck, width on deck was 40. She apparently measured about 77 feet across the wheels "working 15 ft. buckets". I'm particularly intrigued by her draft numbers, "4 1/2 ft. light, 10 ft. loaded". A letter from Gen. S.G. French written on board near Memphis in 1853 includes: "...She is three hundred and sixty five feet in length, forty foot beam, with two engines 36 inch cylinders and eleven foot stroke, with sixteen boilers, two doctors, two freight engines, and wheels forty two feet diameter - burn one hundred cords of wood per day, carried 1,800 tons and I hope won't burst her "bilers" on 120 pounds of steam to the square inch or under any other circumstances..." These numbers vary a bit from the specs printed. She originally had sixteen boilers, later eight with a diameter of 42 inches and length of 32 feet. The specs say the diameter of her wheels was 40 feet. Her machinery would have been useful for your projected side-wheel Louisiana! In her prime her crew comprised 121 men with 70 firemen and deckhands, 25 stewards and waiters, five cooks, three mates, five engineers and clerks, pilots, etc. The monthly payroll was quoted as $4,605. She was a fast boat - New Orleans to Portland, KY in four days, nine hours and thirty minutes. I'd love to know the specifics on her hogging chains. The reason I think her hull would have made a reasonable floating battery is her reserve buoyancy with her original machinery and structure removed. She was easily capable of carrying reinforcement along the waterline and some type of protection for her gun crews. If deployed, she would be moored bow upstream with her battery along her port side. The starboard side could carry her magazine, doctor engine and boilers and coal or wood to service them.
