History

The hull and most of the boiler was made by Mr. John Macmillan in Lanark as a replica of Nathaniel Hereshoff's launch Maud. John intented to fit it with a bronze single cyl. engine. I (the current owner) started my steamboat project parallel with John without knowing so and in an opposite order (engine - boiler - hull). Just after finishng my engine I run into John's add selling Corra Linn. (Unfortunatelly I only got to speak with John once...) After bringing her from Scotland to Czech republic (cca 2200km) I started works to finish the boiler (rolling in all the tubes...) Now Corra Linn is in my garden and I am working on her to be put on the river Moldau soon hopefully.
