VIC 56 - Coastal Steamer 85 ft
VIC 56 is technically an 85 foot,
120 ton steam coastal lighter or
a "puffer". The term "puffer" is derived from the earliest puffers, used on
canals, which had no condensers and exhausted steam to the atmosphere as a
railway engine does. The VIC 56 is now preserved in working order at Chatham
Unpainted Laser cut wooden hull and decking, with cast cleats and details.
