Close up of Steamer BOAZ


  The BOAZ is seen above in her heyday and is mentioned during May 1907 and then again during June 1911 and August 1911, having large repair jobs. Of interest is that the BOAZ Log Book also makes note of this visit to the Elizabeth Marine Ways, this is that Log Book entry:

From S&D Reflector June 1980

These two photos show the BOAZ during her final days, left to rot in a "boneyard" across the river from the Elizabeth Marine Ways.  Read JW's feelings on the day the BOAZ was towed away March 1925.
