Having just found this post I may be late to the show I think the Billings African Queen is a good boat but I i'm not sure the abs hull will stand to the heat of a boiler and engine you may want to scratch build a wooden hull for her . My thoughts only Rick
Go for it MH👍 I wouldn't have the guts or necessary skill and knowledge to even consider it! I'd have to use a smoker and electronics to simulate all the noises! More power to your boiler Mike, keep us informed of progress please. Cheers, Doug 😎
Young at heart - slightly older in other places 😉 Cheers Doug
Sorry, I did understand the question but I’m not a mind reader and your harbour shows an African Queen which does apparently have something that looks like a boiler - hence the question. I’ll leave it to your next door neighbour then. PS post and phone?
The question was "anyone have one for sale" and not a problem with one as it does not yet have one. Another problem is that GayLC lives at the complete opposite end of the country but thanks for the thought. 👍
I’m surprised you haven’t contacted “GaryLC” who asked some time ago if there were any other steam enthusiasts on this site. He posted just last week about any members in the north east who would like to get together. Look him up on the site. PS whats the problem with the existing boiler? I assume its the African Queen in your harbour your doing
