Steamboats

At least 15 steamboats were built between 1828 and 1906 to run on Seneca Lake. The Lake's first steamboat, the Seneca Chief made its maiden voyage the length of the lake and back on July 3, 1828. Operated by Geneva Merchants, John B. and Robert Rumney, it was 90 ft. long, with a 45 hp engine and made the trip within 8 hours. The Ben Loder, Seneca Lake's largest steamboat could carry 1,500 passengers. The Portadora, built in 1909, was the first gasoline powered boat to run a regular schedule on the lake and signaled the beginning of the end of Seneca Lake's steamboat era.
