Paddle steamer 'Charlotte Dundas', 1801. Model (scale 1:24). This famous early steamboat was engined by William Symington, the British pioneer of marine steam propulsion, and was used on the Forth and Clyde canal for experiments by Lord Dundas of Kerse on the use of steam tugs instead of horses for towing vesels. The 'Charlotte Dundas' was built of wood by Alexander Hart at Grangemouth Dockyard. The 10 hp engine drove a single paddle-wheel at the stern of the vesel.
