The Beaver???[edit]

I saw this on the Beaver's own page and I've never heard of it being on the Columbia River; it was an HBC ship and while it did work Puget Sound the HBC had no business on the lower columbia; and the Beaver wasn't exactly a ship you'd want to take around Cape Flattery to the open Pacific in order to get to the Columbia. I'm taking it off the template, and taking the Columbia River steamboats cat someone just placed on the Beaver article; if a citation that it worked the Columbia can be produced, then it can be rewstored.Skookum1 (talk) 05:17, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

not to worry, lotsa sources for this. See my comment on Talk:Beaver (steamship). Mtsmallwood (talk) 06:30, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
OK reinstated.Skookum1 (talk) 06:52, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
I did check and Beaver ran only for a few weeks on the Columbia, so it's an evanescent thing.Mtsmallwood (talk) 18:07, 12 April 2008 (UTC)
