Hi, Mike. Generally, the hull size given in documentation is for the hull only, not including the wheel. To further complicate matters, any "guard" or overhang of the main deck wider than the hull is also not reflected in this documented width.

John Fryant, model builder extraordinaire, is a sometime poster to this board and may have some tips for you. I also highly recommend the "Steamboat Cyclopaedium" by Alan Bates, possibly available from Howard Steamboat Museum at Jeffersonville, IN. John Fryant also authors a quarterly column in the S&D REFLECTOR entitled "Small Stacks", devoted to steamboat model building. Good luck!
