Area: USA West Coast


Name "Ben My Chree" means 'Woman of my heart' in Manx. John chose this name as his family hailed from the Isle of Man before emigrating to the US. This name has also adorned the transoms of no less than six ships of the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company. Hull is an enlarged version of Panatela from "Steamboats and Modern Steam Lanuches" Commissioned and fitted out by John York of "York Compound" fame with the very first of his engines. In 1990 he removed the steam machinery and refitted with an antique Hicks 10hp gas engine. The engine, boiler, patterns, and drawings were all subsequently sold. The hull was bought by current owner in 2015. The original boiler was located at a friend's house in California. After much detective work, the original was located in engine in possession of Kent Lacey Connecticut. After much negotiating, and with the kindness and understanding of Mr. Lacey, we were able to purchase original engine and reunite the original machinery once again. In process of refitting all machinery and returning her to the water.
