Small Lifesize Steam Launch

(1/1)

GR_PaddleSteamers:
Hey Guys,

A while since my last post. I was thinking instead of building or commissioning a new Small Paddle Steamer.
Why not take the false Paddle wheel Idea from the Yarmouth Belle http://www.turks.co.uk/our-fleet/yarmouth-belle/ and add it to a 40ft Steam (Something Like the PS Monarch) http://paddlesteamermonarch.wix.com/ps-monarch or Diesel Launch. Because I am not an engineer so I thought why not have a boat that resembles a Paddle Steamer but is a normal Traditional Boat?

Anyone disagree? Or think It's a better option then getting something that I can't fix?

Tell me what you think etc.

Roderick Smith:
It's your project, but I dislike fake paddleboats.  Make it a real one, or keep it as screw.  Perhaps being steam is the most important attribute.

Roderick.
