Karl,
A quick visit to my favorite logging site at the University of Washington yielded this prototype photo. That is a neat boat, if the era is correct. Now, I have no idea of a manufacturer that might make a similar model.

Karl,

Bill Roy has a planset for a small log pond tug/boat...it's the same one that Smokey Bottom used to create his O-scale resin kit from. The planset also includes drawings for a larger tug, as well as some small Columbia River stern wheelers.

Thanks for the info. I posted this thread for a firend who just joined the forum and wasn't sure how to go about it. So thanks again for the info. I'm sure he will appreciate it.

The 34' Steam Launch model on this site seems to have the "right look".

Guys
I too am interested in this subject, these resource shots are good, but certainly need more information. Any drawings? I suspect the log pond boats were well built, but maybe crude? when did they change from steam to gas?

I have PSC O scale Maritime steam engine for a project like this..just need more info.

Karl,

I took a couple of photos of log pond boats while at the Forestry Museum in British Columbia. These are photos of "Boom" Boats. Maybe they will help.

Paul do you still have a sense of the size of these boats? Thanks for posting them, Pat
