    The British K class steam submarine. Won’t go into details, I’ll link the wiki page, but just not a great idea….

    USS Sable and Wolverine…while not “failures”, they were a little different. They were training aircraft carriers converted from paddle wheel boats, and used to train Navy pilots on the Great Lakes in WWII. Only paddle wheel carriers I’ve ever heard of.

    I think Billings updated the Calypso a few years ago. Yep, I’d like to build that myself.

    📝 Taplin-Baker Hydrojet, RKH products

    Hi yall. Did a little trading this week with a buddy of mine. Traded a boat and a kit, got money in the pocket and a box full of goodies….including an RKH Products Taplin-Baker Hydrojet. Did a little research, found a little info on the STOCK Hydrojet, but this thing is a unicorn. It’s NIB, has the gaskets and Taplins instruction sheet, but there’s additional paperwork that states it was modified by RKH products in Dallas, Texas, and goes into detail on the mods made. I’ve been in this part of Texas all my life save the 5 years I was at Ramstein. Never heard of RKH products. Can’t find ANYTHING on the net. Nada. Apparently the mods included a stronger 3/16 shaft, a different impeller, and an oiling tube for the internal bushing. Now, it would be fun to set this up in a boat with a brushless outrunner on say, 4-6 lipo cells and just go to town, but there’s cheaper and readily available alternatives for that. I don’t really collect much anymore, so I’m probably going to put this up for sale, but being it’s modified I don’t know where to start. I don’t want to give it away, but I don’t want ask too much, and in the off chance I keep it, I would really like to know some history of this thing. If anybody has any info I’ll be truly grateful, and like my Pa used to say, “I’ll dance at your wedding”

    📝 Leak test passed, new railings with brass stanchions started

    Hi y’all. Made one more leak check this morning, with ballast. Set in the tub 20 minutes or so, nothing. Not a drop!! The tube was greased and nothing there either. I still have to do a minor refit on the shaft ends to slow any water coming in when reversing, but I feel she’s good. The rails aft, however, are another matter. Between multiple trips upstairs and all the handling trying to find the leak, I’ve bent the railings multiple times, and it didn’t take long for a couple of the stanchions to give way, so I pulled the railings off, redrilled the holes to clear the old railing bits that were left, and I’m making a new unit with brass stanchions. Don’t know if I’m going to paint them white again, or go for another color, but by all rights and measures this boat should be finished, including ships boat and a few other details, by the end of the week.

    Roy, hope you’re feeling better soon. I had a stroke myself about 13 years ago, my grandmother had mini strokes. Take care of yourself and rest, we’ll be here for you.
