Hess gunboat, flywheel powered with original box. I understand that this boat was also made for and marketed by Carette and possibly others.
Two more variations of the Hess gunboat. The only difference between these is the graphics printed on the sides and the boat on the right has deck guns.
Hess “Salon Steamer”. Several variations exist as with most all Hess toys. This boat is flywheel driven and uses the same basic frame as the early Hess battleship.
Although I have not seen catalog listings and this toy is not marked, I am sure that it is an earlier Hess battleship. It appears to be equipped with a towing bar in the back, but I have not seen the following vessels anywhere.
