Additional Information The CITY OF MOAB was built at a cost of some $15,000 in Grand Junction, Colorado, in 1905. Fifty- five feet long, powered by two 30 horsepower gasoline engines, she was much too large for the shallow Green River, and after one attempt to reach the confluence with the Colorado, was tied up on the riverbank and left for the winter. Stripped of all her fancy cabins and converted to a steam powered stern-wheeler, the boat was renamed the CLIFF DWELLER in 1906
