These are the basic designs for the Paddle Boat.
NEW HULL PLANS
Do not use a full scale print of this drawing. The drawing is done in autoCad and instead of redrawing it everytime I changed a measurement, I just changed the numbers and not the drawing scale. I changed the width some many times I can't remember what this drawing was originally at. But the measurements should be right. I'm planning on using them.
Here is the basic pattern for the paddle wheel. I plan to use 3/4" marine plywood for the hub and circle braces, and 2x4 for the paddle floats supports. The floats will be made of 2x8s. Need to make 4 since the chain drive is in the center of the axle with two identical paddle wheels on each side.

Cut slits for a 1 1/4" pipe to be able to slide into. Then use resin putty to fill in the gaps and fair pipe into rudder to ease water flow.
