1990 Dampfbarkasse Alfredo
A small steam engine and a “dwarf” boiler were mounted on the existed boat structure. The death of the owner kept from completing the work, but the launch was made later by the employees of the museum "Historama" in 1990.
That made possible to think over the destiny of the ship Thalia and it was fully restored and put into service over again on 2 July, 1988.
In commemoration of the pioneer Alfred Kretschmann we introduce a historical parallel of two technical characteristics of two wide from being equal boats on the Wörthersee.
