I think the Vic Puffers were built for the Royal Navy in WW2. They served as tenders etc. After the war. I think selling off the surplus caused an over supply of vessels at the same time as increasing competition from road transport. The Puffers made a lot of use of the Crinan Canal which cut out a long voyage round the Kintyre peninsula. They were built so the cargo could be loaded and unloaded on beaches at low tide.
Normally the funnel was forward of the wheelhouse.
