english This type of steam laucnhe were used in Great Britain on canals , rivers ans some lakes during late XIX. century .

Powered by a simple steam engine without a condenser, since as it drew fresh water from the canal there was no need to economise on water use. Once steam had been used by the engine, it was simply exhausted up the funnel in a series of puffs as the piston stroked. As well as the visual sight of a series of steam puffs following the boat, the simple engines made a characteristic puffing sound.

From 1850 to the early decades of the 20th century they were used for inland trade and for commuting people. Many of these fine craft were saved from destruction when steam went out of fashion and are now used by collectors.
