Denatured Alcohol by octman Commander   Posted: 2 days ago
I think this has got a bit off the track. I was asking about denatured alcohol, not acetone. DNA is ethanol and can be used to thin epoxy. see this You Tube video :

Secure the hatches and raise the flags ! by robbob Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 days ago
Hi Paul. I will certainly video the maiden voyage, I'm just waiting for the lake conditions to improve. Thanks for the good advice as always. BTW. I like your 'noisy fireboat', sounds really good, those transducers are very effective 👍 Best. Rob.

Hi all, I'm on the Bluebird Project forum, this video has just been posted on there, looks like things are hotting up on the world water speed record front!!! Cheers Wayne

Rob, make sure you video the maiden! Also, I would recommend short runs, and keep an eye on esc/motor heat etc, but I'm sure you know all this! best of luck Paul

Working radar by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 18 days ago
Hi Julian, I think that's the easiest in the long run given the space available.👍 Also simplest (and quietest) way to get the drive round 90° corners 😉 If you don't have / can't find a suitable size rubber band get a length of round silicon rubber gasket material ca 1 to 2mm diameter. This you can cut to length (allowing for some tension) and join the ends with cyano adhesive. I used this method for the sealing gasket on my Type IIA sub. No leaks 😊 Have fun,😎 Doug BTW: old stripped out video recorders / players are a good source of cogs, pulleys and drive belts 😉

copper boiler by lesliebreame Lieutenant   Posted: 18 days ago
there are 2 domes. the former you can see is for the firebox dome . Ibeat the copper over the former with a mallet because spinning 3mm copper even when annealed is very difficult for an amateur who doesnt have very powerful lathe. However i did spin it when finished to take out the wrinkles.!! I had to anneal it about 40 times !!!! Same with the top dome , which was slightly easier because it has no flange at the bottom. The 2 pictures are different boilers, the left one has no domes as i wanted to make it quickly. The flue is the fire hole as well and the boiler is the same design as in my experimental coal fired outboard turbine boat which you can view on VIDEO GALLERY. Scroll down till you find it.
