    i have built a paddle tug. Build posted on this site, Plans were purchased from Glasgow.
    They show the construction of the paddles, both fixed and feathering.
    There is more info on a web site (in German) but good plans.
    i would need to look up the detail for you if interested.

    Hi Andrew, You've made a very nice job of your fifie. Really looks the part. Looking forward to seeing the paddle boat you intend building next.

    Cheers, Nerys

    When the winds before the rain, soon you may make sail again, but when the rain's before the wind, tops'l sheets and halyards mind

    Well done.

    If it looks right it probably is.

    This is the scratch built boat of the Scottish Fifie that I completed recently.

    As I mentioned before the plans where very difficult to follow and I had a lot of guess work to do in shaping the hull, and quite frankly I was very surprised when it floated so perfectly. I was actually elated to see it float.
    Having been a sea cadet in my youth I learnt a bit about rigging and so made up my own idea of what that should look like. The little rope blocks were hand made but not accurate, however from a few feet off they look quite realistic. I have included a set pictures of the boat for your perusal.

    It is my intention to build a paddle boat steamer as my next project, I would appreciate it if someone would be in the position to let me have building plans for one with side paddles of approximately 800mm in length. Preferably I would like to build from a wooden kit, but I have been informed that these are like hens teeth.
