    Paddle boat

    I want to build a wood paddle boat of approximately 30 to 35 metres, until now, i could'nt find any plans for such a boat. Is there someone that can help me find one, thank you in advance.

    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.

      Claude, the boat that Shipyard is offering for sale is the real deal, and it’s (as we say in the US) a “Doozy”.
