Victoria is a steam launch, built about 1900, which has spent all her life on and about the River Thames. She now belongs to Ian Rutter, a member of the Steamboat Association of Great Britain, who kindly offered me all facilities for photographing and drawing her. I described her in detail last month in my Marine Miscellany column, so I will only repeat here that she is 30ft. 6in. long by 6ft. beam and that the model is made to a scale of 1/12, i.e. I in. to 1ft. Apart from an additional 3/8 in. on the draught to give a little more buoyancy (displacement 6 1/4lbs) and the practical conncessions demanded by any live steam engine and boiler she is built to scale with some accuracy.
