Lydia Eva is steel.
This is an excellent book on building one in wood

Been on her. Lotsa shiney pipes and pistons. Seen her from the rig choppers sometimes, easily recognisable by the 10 mile smudge with a tiny green dot at the bottom.

If only all other steel boats had her lines.

Very nice indeed.

Looks like you can tour her. https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g190788-d3426980-r287628222-Lydia_Eva_Steam_Drifter_Boat_Tours-Great_Yarmouth_Norfolk_East_Anglia_England.html

Pickled herring is a staple of my Christmas table. So, cheers to Lydia Eva and her crews.
