PS Pyap at Pioneer Settlement, Swan Hill. Pyap was built in 1896 as a wooden barge and had a steam engine and paddles fitted in 1898. She served as a floating shop on the Murray for 70 years. Sold in 1931 she had varied service until the late 1940s when she was tied up. Subsequently Pyap was converted to a steel hull with diesel engine working as a tourist boat from the Swan Hill Pioneer Settlement.
