Czech or Slovak paddler plans
« on: June 19, 2005, 05:17:48 AM »
Thanks to eddy, I have been into an excelent Czech site containing
lots of ship plans including three paddlers.Its fairly slow down-
loading, but the plans are good to excelent. The paddlers are as
follows: Kolesovy parnik (paddle steamer???) BOHEMIA built I believe
in the 1830s and rebuilt several times. An elegant but fairly easy to
build ship.Several photos in accompanying article.
Kolesovyparnik Robert E Lee. General arrangement plan.
Parnik VLATAVA Built I think in 1940? sorry mynotes are out
on loan, so I cant check this. Well detailed working model plans with
several construction photos and a nice colour picture of the model in
action. Click on the link marked abrazkove galerie above the plan for
photos of the full size paddler moored in Prague.
The site is rather extensive and can be a little difficult due to
language. Site address is:

Best of luck with it- Walter Snowdon

The engines of the BOHEMIA are still in service, now in the paddle steamer
DIESBAR at Dresden, built in 1884. The engines were built in England in 1841
