Russ to the best of my knowledge steamships were just that, ships powered with steam powering engines, lighting was accomplished with oil lamps and candles in the cabins with navigation lights being made of oil soaked rags burning in iron baskets. I don’t believe that there were any steam powered generators to produce electricity during that time period.
