(Disneyland, c. 1980s-90s) A Park-used Naphtha Launch Boat outboard propeller once utilized for the Jungle Cruise at Disneyland. The original boat designs by Harper Goff were modified to be propelled by outboard motors with propellers submerged beneath the waterline. During routine annual rehabilitations, the Maintenance Staff would either repair or replace mechanical parts, like propellers. Measuring 11.5" in diameter x 3" deep, the Park-used 3-blade outboard propeller is in very good condition with some surface impressions, scrapes, abrasions, and minor oxidation to the blade's faces and edges. For exhibition, the museum piece has been mounted to a custom faux-bamboo and reclaimed wood base measuring 13"x21.25" and 5.5" deep, alongside photographic imagery and a plaque.
