The Eureka

This is apparently the longest wooden boat still afloat today, at "the length of a football field" - just shy of 300 feet, and weighing 2,420 tons. It could carry 5000 people at a time, and was built back in 1890. I didn't end up going on it... I've been on plenty of paddle steamers before. Granted, none this big.
