    Here is a picture of the launcher I built with PVC pipe and fittings. Also, a picture of the launcher and the modified "Borkum" I am building.

    You can buy the engine with the boat kit but the last I checked it was out of stock. I happened to have the engine on hand when I ordered the boat kit.

    This is my first steam boat build, prior steam items are stationary steam models and steam locomotives, all operational. Prior boat model builds are "Atlantic" and "Independence" display models and an electric powered tug boat "Long Island".

    Glad you had steam experience๐Ÿ‘. I've seen some model boaters frustrated with steam.

    Kit is by Krick and it will be steam powered. Scale is 1" to 1 foot. Only have a few hours into at this point.
