In 1787 Fitch launched his first successful steam boat on the Delaware river. Unfortunately Fitch was unable to maintain a continuing relationship with the steamboat as he had troubles paying off debts....
"Fitch failed to pay sufficient attention to construction and operating costs and was unable to justify the economic benefits of steam navigation. Robert Fulton (1765-1815) built his first boat after Fitch's death, and it was Fulton who became known as the "father of steam navigation."
Robert Fulton ended up getting the credit for inventing the steamboat as he was the first man to be successful in building and maintaining the steamboat. The Steamboat was a big part of the industrial revolution. It made traveling easier and also helped to start the era of travel and engines come about. For example of their impact on the industrial revolution, the steamboats were used for shipment of resources as well as a few battles during the civil war. The Steamboats really proved to be extremely helpful and a good steppingstone from the sailboat and other forms of transportation at that time. Not only did the steamboat help to carry larger quantities of materials and people, but it also was much faster than sailboats and did not rely on intermittent winds. THANKS FOR WATCHING and We hope you have a STEAMY day! :) and HAPPY SPIRIT WEEK.
By: Maeven Barry and Julia Chenoweth It greatly eased the transport of goods and people across bodies of water. The boats could travel faster, despite currents, which increased productivity of trading. Most steamboats are not in commercial use today, due to the high man power it takes to fuel one. However some still are. The Michigan's own S.S Badger goes from Ludington, MI to Manitowoc, WI You will probably recognize this steam boat. Many naval machines today, such as submarines and nuclear powered ships are essentially steamboats because... ...Nuclear power is basically run off of steam propulsion. FUN FACTS!!!! The American Queen is the largest steamboat ever. With 222 state rooms for a capacity of 436 guests and a crew of 160. She's 418 feet long and 89 feet wide. S.S is short for steamship. Steamboat Spring, CO was named by a French fur-trader, who thought the springs sounded like a steamboat. Mickey Mouse's television debut
was piloting a steamboat in Steamboat Willie
in November of 1928.
