Gerald this little side wheeler is available from the Reliable Steam Engine site. Plans cost $50US and they are available on a CD or they now be emailed directly to you. The plans are OK for boatbuilders as they are a traditional set of plans with lines and offset tables.

Then go to their Boats and look for "Rebel".
There is a nice print available: just click and you can print off a nice print. OK for your workshop wall even if you don't build her.
There is also a colour photo and a link to a short video clip.
Its an interesting design for a small full sized paddle wheeler, but I think the Traditional BoatShop's "Minette" is a neater looking boat.
