    African Queen was a 30-foot steam boat built of riveted sheet iron in 1912 in the United Kingdom for service in Africa on the Victoria Nile and Lake Albertwhere the movie was filmed in 1950. Originally named Livingstone, she was built for the British East Africa Railway[2] and used from 1912 to 1968. It spent most of its first 50 years operating in the waters of the Ruki River in the northern Democratic Republic of Congo where she was used to transport hunters, mercenaries, and cargo.[2]
    According to an article on its 2012 restoration, it was built by Lytham Shipbuilding and Engineering Co.,[2] as evidenced by the boiler plate and Lancashire records.

    Bogie had another movie with a wooden powerboat with a small cabin. Key Largo, I believe.

    Caine wasn't wood, was it?

    If you would have a good boat, be a good guy when you build her - honest, careful, patient, strong.

    The old John Wayne "Wake of the Red Witch"? And I don't know if the San Pablo of "Sand Pebbles" was wood or Iron?

    I'm just guessing, but "Tugboat Annie" likely had a wooden tug.

    with a cold chisel
    (In the prime of my youth I cut a '49 Studebaker in half with a cold chisel. Which had to be periodically resharpened)
