Its very similar in appearance, but in know way matches performance, I built a Thames launch Miranda 6 years ago and the boiler all to Basil Hartley design, not only were the hull line plans wrong also the engine dimensions incorrect the engine and boiler were far to heavy for the displacement of the hull, it ended up a museum piece as it sat 1/2” below the waterline.
There is a video of Miranda on youtube running in a neighbours
swimming pool, when I find the link I will post it.
