S.S Mt. Washington or M.S Mt Washington? Because it looks like the current one before it was cut in half and added to.

This is the SS (Steam Ship) MT. Washington II, and it is the same hull that was extended a few years ago. Her steam engines were taken for WW2, and she was refitted with two Enterprise diesels after the war, making her the MS (Motor Ship) Mt. Washington. There are lot of pictures and information about both Mt. Washingtons available on this site.

This is the same Mount Washington that is cruising the lake today! The Mt. Washington II began her career on Lake Winnipesaukee with a steam engine. When Leander Lavallee was looking to outfit the new ship, he decided on another steamboat rather than a motor vessel. They purchased the power plant from the 140 ocean yacht Crescent III, which was located in Long Island, NY. The power plant was built by Herreshoff Manufacturing and consisted of two three-cylinder triple-expansion steam engines, size 10, 16 and 25-inch diameter by 13 -inch stroke, two water tube boilers; two propellers and the necessary shafting. The equipment cost was $25,000 and was reconditioned by Bethlehem Steel Corporation before being shipped to New Hampshire.



It wasn't until 1946 when she was outfitted with two Enterprise diesel engines with 615 horsepower each. Then there was a slight name change from S.S. Mt. Washington II to M.V. Mount Washington. The II was dropped and the full spelling of Mount was implemented.
