The Pioneer was the first in the series of submarines that would make way for the legendary Hunley. It was fabricated from quarter-inch plates which were bolted to an iron frame. Bolt heads were hammered into counter sinkholes which gave the sub's hull a smooth surface. Diving planes attached to either side of the sub enabled the vessel to submerge and surface, while a small propeller at the surface gave the sub its power to move.
