Is it a registered vessel, or did someone just stick the name on the stern?

I searched for 2 hours for history, location, registration etc. Know it existed because found records of sale of both III and IV being sold to operator on Lake Havasu and names change to Colorado Queens or something like that. Have the pictures of the III from Mean chicken but could not find any picture of IV. Will keep looking. :Scared:

I used to have a old floppy disk with many pictures of the Queen lV sitting in dry storage down in lake Havasu, but i am afraid I have thrown them away somewhere along the line... I was once upon a time interested in this boat and was talking with the tour operator that purchased it with his partner at the time, from Dick Rivers after he sold out to Beamers.

Could they even legally run it in hells canyon anymore? I though they had a length limit of like 40ft or something.
