Seeking Information About the CSS St. Patrick

One of my fellow naval wargame enthusiasts in the Naval Wargames Society is ‘desperately seeking’ a little information about a submersible, more accurately an ‘awash’ boat called the St. Patrick built in the Confederacy. It was used, or at least present, in Mobile Bay.

Anyone have any information on her overall design, dimensions, technical specifications, or armament? 

I have a feeling she looked rather like the David’s funnel with cigar hull and bowsprit mounted torpedo. Am I wrong? I don’t recall seeing an image of her anywhere.
