    Claude, I'm surprised you haven't been offered any help. Sounds like a fun project. Generally, plans were not used to construct the paddlewheel boats. Rather they were built by "rule of thumb" on a handshake between the customer and the builder. But, there is help in the form of Captain Alan L. Bate's "The Western Rivers Steamboat Cyclopedium." Alas, the book is very rare and even Amazon is out of copies. You might search eBay. I can save you a lot of fuss, time, and effort as I have a lovely paddlewheer for sale whose design Captain Bates influenced personally and through his Cyclopedium.
