Hi Marky
I have the Deans 4' glass fibre hull steam picket boat, uses either electric or a Miranda Twin oscillator steam plant.
Mine is the gunboat version as against the Admirals barge, but all capital ships of the period have several picket boats so you have a wide choice. The bands on the funnel signified the boat number 2 bands, boat 2 etc.
Good luck wth the builds
Dave
