Product Description

Pure steampunk fantasy right here.  This is yet another steam-enhanced galleon, with paddle wheels on the sides this time.  Historically, screw-driven sailing frigates co-existed with side-wheel sailing ships, and had different purposes.  Warships typically dispensed with large paddle wheels because broadside guns would have to be removed.  In addition, paddle wheels are huge targets.  However, with nautical screw technology still in its infancy in the days of the first steamships, paddle wheels were preferred for speed and ease of maintainance.  Keeping up with the logic behind my earlier steam galleon, this side-wheel version should really be a high-sided fluyt ship, rather than a race-built fighting galleon, but so what?  This is a fun idea...
