Actually the all aft design began long before the "River Class" boats or even the Silver Isle, Cape Breton Miner, etc.. The whalebacks were primarily an all aft design as was the Str's Andaste and Choctaw. The "pigboats" dated from the late 1890's into the early 1900's and successfully used this design for many years.
