I doubt VERY much that you will be able to hire a steam boat!!however, jokes apart, I think you might be able to hire a skiff, which is the type of craft the famous three made their trip in. I think you might enjoy it more, as the operation of a steam boat is a very time consuming bussiness indeed. I speak from experience, and believe me , between stoking the fire, filling the boiler, lubricating the motion, and general attention to the works, you dont even have time to watch the world go by.let alone drift off into a “brown study” as Jerome was prone to do.
