The Cathedral was built in 1895 and was originally a Naphtha launch powered by a steam type engine, boiling a low grade gasoline called Naphtha. The vapor would run through the engine similar to a steam engine. Her first home was in the San Francisco Bay area where she remained until 1924, at which time she was transported to Lake Tahoe. The original engine was removed after this point, and replaced with her current Union Marine engine. The boat was sold and moved to Fallen Leaf Lake in 1939. Subsequently, the owners sank her in 1951. She laid on the bottom in 60 feet of water until raised in 1972. The current owner restored the boat entirely over a 2 year period and she is quite a piece of history!
