The info I got (about third hand) was the engine is one of three known to exist and the only running example...

I'm hardly the expert here and hopefully other members of the museum can provide specifics. Yes it is a replica, although I believe the engine is correct and possibly the original. We had this in the museum for a while and it appears to me that the deck on this boat is a canvas-like material, finished with some sort of clear coating, like epoxy or varnish. I would assume there is some wood or other supporting surface beneath the "canvas"

Great picture!  This is obviously a replica of the original boat.

My question is this: The deck appears to be grey paint.  Was the original boat a painted wood deck or was it some other material? A painting I have by Jim Clary of Miss Americas I and II also shows the decks in grey, but the later Miss Americas all appear to be stained or bleached mahogany.
