The Clyde "Puffer" must be one of the most instantly recognisable ships ever to have been built.  Originally built as a horse drawn barge for the Forth and Clyde Canal the Puffer gets it's nickname from the Put Put sound the steam driven Bilge Pump made later this was transferred to the sound made by the exhaust steam from the cylinder on the engine escaping from the pipe attached to the funnel. The model represents one of the sea going "Puffers" that worked mainly around the Clyde to the various Scottish Islands like the Hebrides Orkney and Shetland. that having been said, these little ships could be seen almost anywhere in the British Isles quite literally from John o'Groats to Lands End. Indeed many were built by small shipbuilding companies in Yorkshire Durham and Northumberland. Whilst our "Puffer" follows our usual method of being generic in nature, it is based on the vessels that were made famous in the Ealing Comedy "The Maggie" and the BBC Scotland TV Series taken from the books about the rogue skipper "Para Handy" I refer of course to the "Vital Spark" and also the now Preserved "Auld Reekie"
