1910: Floating Church Ship

Translated: In 1910 the first steamboat-church was built in honor of St. Nicholas. The church was built on an English ship dating from the mid-19th century and the project was financed by merchants from Astrakhan. The floating church was used for missionary works in the Volga.

I'm wondering how big this boat was...
  • and they used an 1850s boat in 1910?
  • do we have any additional info on this?
