Sad News by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 12 days ago
I had San Pedro in the bath a day ago, Just doing a seaworthiness test! I think she was in the water for about 5hrs, needles to say she took on about 4oz of water! I didn't realize until a day later when I picked her up to put her back in the water. I saw a water stain didn't pay to much attention to it. I went to turn on her running system. As you can imagine I had a look of dread, when I saw all that water and no pump to pump it out of the engine room... I took the batteries out, they suffered no damage. The electronics was pulled out and dried! I left the superstructure off so the engine room can dry. It will be a few weeks of drying, before I can try to access where the leak is coming from.😡😡😡 But I think it's all the weight she carries. 21lbs is quite a bit to carry! Oh, well I'll figure it out later...😭😭😭

Engine run up and testing by Rod Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 13 days ago
The boat is now completed and just need to test steam engine smoker and asdic sound system before launching

HMCS Agassiz by Rod Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 16 days ago
Hi Dave Nice to hear from you again Yes the total superstructure and mast are removable to get into the steam engine The engine is manufactured by Saito and is a single screw with single boiler and pressurises up to about 60 psi Heated with a methanol fueled burner and runs on full steam for about 25 minutes The unit runs very smoothly and creates smoke through a built in smoke generator for more realism Cheers Rod

HMCS Agassiz by Rod Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 18 days ago
These little corvettes were the backbone of the Atlantic defence of the supply convoys from Halifax Canada to Britain from 1942 to 45 Here she is with steam engine engaged for checking before recent sailing complete with Asdic sound This was used to echo signal of enemy submarines to pinpoint their position
