The Pusey & Jones Co., of Wilmington, Del., the builders of steamer Nantucket, have contracted to have another steamer ready to go on the line June 1st, 1891, and from the description which has been given she will excel in speed and seagoing qualities any steamboat ever on the line. The dimensions will be as follows: 210 feet long, 34 feet wide, 11 feet 6 inches deep, and draw 4 3/4 feet of water, which will allow her to go over Nantucket bar at any time of tide. She will have a beam engine, the cylinder will be 50 inches, the stroke 10 feet, the wheels will be 21 feet in diameter with feathering buckets, the depth of the hold and size of the wheels will bring the shaft just clear of the main deck, and will be passed over instead of under as on the other boats, which will be a great convenience to passengers in landing. The height between the main and promenade decks will be 8 1/2 feet, between the promenade and hurricane decks 7 1/2 feet, which will make her one foot higher than the Nantucket in the joiner work and 1 1/2 feet in the hold. The new steamer is calculated to be as fast as ant boat of her size in the country, and is expected to steam from 18 to 20 miles an hour. Every attention will be given to the safety and comfort of passengers. The hull will be divided by three water-tight iron bulkheads, one will be 20 feet from the stem, the next one forward of the boilers, the third one aft of the engine. She will have two boilers 9 feet diameter and 22 feet long placed under the main deck. The social hall aft the engine on main deck will be similar to the Nantucket’s, being layed with black walnut and yellow pine. The saloon on promenade deck will be about 100 feet long out of which will be ten staterooms fitted for small parties or families. The hurricane deck will be reached by a stairway aft the main saloon, and will be fitted with seats for passengers; this will be a new departure from any of the other boats and will make a grand lookout and promenade. Forward on this deck will be the pilot house supplied with a Williamson steam steerer. Aft the pilot house will be the officers rooms. The hull of the steamer will be built at Philadelphia, by Charles Hillman & Co., as the Pusey & Jones Co., do not build wooden hulls, these are the same partied that built the hull of the Nantucket. The steamer will be first-class in every respect and the patrons of the steamboat company may feel assured that she will meet the demands of the traveling public. A number of names have been suggested, but as far as can be found out Oak Bluffs seem to be ahead.
