    Hi.
    It only takes one to launch. the funel wheelhouse comes of in one piece and then it takes 5 pieces of lead 130x75x20 after you have put it in the water.then 1 of 12v batery 170x160x130. then two 6 volt baterys and a cast iron burner that burns coal for the smoke.
    the motor is a fan heater motor from a truck and turns a 130mm 4blade prop. would love to put it on steam one day.
    Keith.
