== Early Years ==
The long〔(【引用サイトリンク】title=President and the Thames Pageant )〕 ''President'' was constructed in 1909 at FMC's company dock in Saltley,〔(【引用サイトリンク】title=Steam Narrow Boat President )〕 and cost £600.〔(【引用サイトリンク】title=History )〕 She was registered on 23 June that year.〔 Her riveted, wrought iron hull is shaped in the 'Josher' style, named for FMC director Joshua Fellows.〔
In 1925, the Ruston, Proctor and Company steam boiler and engine were replaced by a 15 hp Bolinder crude oil engine.〔
Ernest Thomas, a director of FMC, and a Walsall-based coal carrier, acquired the boat in 1946.〔 She was sold to George and Matthews of Wolverhampton in 1948,〔 but that year the UK's canals were nationalised and she finished her working days as part of British Waterways' northern maintenance fleet, on the Trent and Mersey, Macclesfield and Shropshire Union canals, from a base at Northwich.〔
