River Queen - A clean older 60's era Riverqueen Houseboat.
Any Riverqueen houseboats from the 60's era still out there?
I have a River Queen houseboat, 1960, 27 foot, outboard powered, with a 8 foot by 15 foot cabin.
Is there anyone who has a River-Queen Houseboat from the 60's era? Thanks, Tom.

Well Tom, congratulations on your 1960 River Queen houseboat. You've got quite an amazing piece of history in your hands, with the steel River Queen houseboat. I had never heard of the 27 foot model.
I am also hoping that others with Riverqueens will come forward, since these houseboats are from the beginning of the blossoming of steel houseboat period.
They are very solid boats, built like tanks, and could handle some good sized rough water. They are roomy, easily repaired, and if I remember correctly, may were also powered with V8 Chrysler engines, and Dana outdrives.
Again, congratulations on having a 1960 River queen houseboat.
Lastly, hopefully some of our readers will share and post comments about their Riverqueen houseboat stories and experiences.
