The boat was ready for a trial run by August of 1807. They called this boat Clermont by history. It was 150 feet long and 13 feet white. Fulton and his team left at one o'clock, but shortly after they left the engine stopped. once they fixed the problem they continued. They went five miles up the river 24 hours later they made it to Robert Livingston's manor house that was 110 miles up the Hudson. They finally finished the voyage the next day. Fulton actually took passengers on his voyage back to New York.
