    Only the open deck boat for sale now, fitted with a Wilesco d46 boiler and twin cylinder engine. Servos for speed and rudder. This boat runs on gas from a small gas cylinder which gives around 15 to 20 mins running. Looking for Β£170 collection only. Some people have asked about a boiler test and I have looked into this as I will never understand why it needs one, 19psi, there is more pressure in a coke can. Anyway to get a test it needs a pressure test. Or just buy a new boiler off eBay for Β£55 pounds. This is collection only from Yeovil

    Mornin' Maurice,
    No not yet. So far I've cleaned and primed the hull and bought new ESCs, 50 calibre MGs with mounts and ammo belts from Shapeways, scale crew members and Pacific cammo paints, Oh and the 37mm field gun for the foredeck. Then I got tangled up in a restoration and conversion from static to RC of an ancient Billing Boats Danish fish cutter. 😲
    Right now I'm trying to figure out how to fit my renovated and converted Taycol Target motor plus battery and usual electronics into the small hull!

    Have been considering spraying some colour on the PTB hull the next few days, while it's still warm and dry outsideπŸ˜‰ Then I can set about refitting the shafts and rudders.

    What are you up to? Apart from sniffing round steamers!😁
    All the best, Doug 😎
    Young at heart - slightly older in other places πŸ˜‰ Cheers Doug

    Hi Maurice, Shall we start an auction !?😁
    That's the one that appealed to me as well. Looks a bit like a Pinnace?
    But if you have steam experience, which I don't, I'll 'retire hurt' 😭
    Good luck, Doug 😎

    hi terry

    might be a bit cheeky but i would be interested in what looks to me like a victorian pleasure launch which i presume looking at the photo could be about 30inch plus?, would you consider selling it as a single item if so at what price

    regards

    basils dad

    I just used them on my local water, they don’t have any paperwork as it was not needed when I used them, and I am not in any club. They are only little Wilesco boilers and there is more pressure in a cycle inner tube.

    Very nice boats, well worth the asking price, but all three together? I doubt you'll find a buyer as they represent very different tastes.
    BUT, at the price of steamy bits these days, a bargain. Are the boilers all inspected and certificated?
