The Puffin, built in 1906, is a 19' boat with a small steam engine that generates 5HP. With a total of six passengers including two to operate the boat we took a nice cruise around Lake Union taking turns piloting the boat and blowing the whistle. This was a great way to see a little of Lake Union and learn about steam engines.
