Default USS Octorara

I am looking for interior plans for the USS Octorara, a sidewheel gunboat built at the Brooklyn Navy Yard in 1861. I recently acquired a sea captain's desk which has the word Octorara written in pencil on the bottom board.

I do some furniture restoration and date the desk to the mid 19th century. The primary wood is walnut and the secondary wood is white pine which leads me to believe in a New England origin. The desk is built at an angle - designed to fit into a specific area.

Are there any plans for these sidewheelers built in New York?
