Between 1785 and 1796, John Fitch constructed four different steamboats that successfully plied rivers and lakes to demonstrate the feasibility of using steam for water locomotion. His models utilized various combinations of propulsive force, including ranked paddles (patterned after Indian war canoes), paddle wheels and screw propellers.
