Plans for steam launches?

I have been looking, but have not had great success in finding plans sets for building a steam launch hull in the 40+ inch (1 meter) size.

Any sources out there?

When you are on the myhobbystore site look at Miranda Steam Launch MM1348
Its 42".

I have seen Kilburn Adams design for the SkiffAmerica 20, but did not know he did a Steam Launch model.
