Helps to have the plans together as gives a good idea of the size and placement of things this plan is particularly good 64 pages and I notice the whole superstructure over the mechanicals can be removed without upsetting the lay of the planking ,hope to build a small yarrow boiler for this with twin cylinder side valve with drop cog reverse for want of a better name sort of like a see saw with cogs on each end often seen on lathes so this will give independant paddles also my thanks to Derek "decoy" :-)) for his valuable time and expertise in translating the language

  just for info John, the mechanism you describe is known as a 'tumbler reverse' and as you rightly point out was often to be found on lathes. It's a very economical way to reverse a drive,
