Clyde Puffer by lesliebreame Captain   Posted: 22 days ago
yes Doug, and when the computer and printer wont do what you want and your tax return or companies house documents are due urgently but refuse to go through and you tear your hair out and swear violently , you wish life was much simpler ! I thought these machines were supposed to help us. When i was a trainee engineer they told us that in the future we would all have so much leisure time because machines would be doing all the work !!! Got that wrong didnt they !!!

Clyde Puffer by lesliebreame Captain   Posted: 22 days ago
yes, and the more there is the more to go frustratingly wrong !! i keep promising myself to keep things simple but being an inventive sort of chap things inevitably get more complicated. My original Explorer steam boats were the best.....simple boiler and oscillating steam engine. Ah.. lovely.

Clyde Puffer by lesliebreame Captain   Posted: 27 days ago
Clyde Puffer project showing new water filling pump and electronic level control as yet untested !! Fingers crossed !!

Tugboat Brooklyn! by lesliebreame Captain   Posted: 1 month ago
very nice but if you got into live steam you could have smoke and a steam whistle for free !!!

JANE by lesliebreame Captain   Posted: 1 month ago
yes, my mate has added a lot of weight on top compared with the original so consequently has ended up a bit lower in the water. Bob was firing up his Explorer next to me and couldn't get the radio to work as he had plugged the servo into the wrong slot!!

Perkasa by lesliebreame Captain   Posted: 4 months ago
lovely and beautiful boating pond.

explorer by lesliebreame Captain   Posted: 4 months ago
I sold an EXPLORER steam boat kit to my mate Bob and look how he painted it !!!! He intends to call it HUMBUG .....and i wonder why !!! I think he is fitting a WW1 gun to the front of it soon. My red and white boat is far more refined dont you think !! Video taken at TILFORD rural life center Easter Saturday ......an annual toy steam up. Les Breame

none by lesliebreame Captain   Posted: 7 months ago
yes and i have not blown myself up yet!!!! insurance people please note.

none by lesliebreame Captain   Posted: 8 months ago
Experimenting with steam flash boiler and it looks promising!!! Better make a pump next instead of the syringe but I don't expect the little oscillator will cope. If it doesn't will make a small electric one. Need an ice breaker today !!! Les

Christmas Greetings by lesliebreame Captain   Posted: 8 months ago
nice video and makes me want to get out there boating but its snowing !!! have good Christmas !!

Fast Patrol Boat by lesliebreame Captain   Posted: 10 months ago
At Ilfracombe pond is Bob Burrows Vintage Model Boat Co kit of the Fast Patrol Boat. Bobs made a nice job of it and has brushless motor with Lipoly batteries. Forward / reverse control was nothing special on maiden voyage and came close to a good sinking !!!

Bob the Duck by lesliebreame Captain   Posted: 10 months ago
brilliant !!!les

HMS Triumph by lesliebreame Captain   Posted: 10 months ago
lovely, but the weed looks a bit of a risk in such a big pond !!!

Sea Cadet by lesliebreame Captain   Posted: 10 months ago
We had a brilliant though exhausting day at Winterbourne house and gardens on Saturday with lots of steaming and BBQ bacon!! Here is a superb Marten Howes Balis in aluminium owned by John Esher.

I live in Devon now Dom but my best buddy is buried in the churchyard in Headcorn. Is the meeting at the same place next year, if so i can come up and kill two birds with one stone so to speak !! Les

very nice. Where is the show please?

Outboard steam launch by lesliebreame Captain   Posted: 11 months ago
Second outboard ive built. The engine/drive takes weeks to make and needs careful setting up to get the gears to mesh. The first one i made goes really well [ pure chance !!! ] so ive knocked up another for Lee. The boiler is twin 28mm copper tube and is tablet fired [ to keep the weight down ].

Jane and Puffer by lesliebreame Captain   Posted: 11 months ago
We had a good day out at Ilfracombe pond on Monday with light wind so we could get steam up quite readily. Picture shows my coal fired puffer project and Duncans steam paddle boat fired by tablets.

various by lesliebreame Captain   Posted: 11 months ago
Another fine days boating at Ilfracombe. Boats are my experimental coal fired turbine [needs more pressure !! ], Gordons Hydro and Duncans /My steam paddle boat.

yacht by lesliebreame Captain   Posted: 11 months ago
cheers!!! i think we got him !!!

yacht by lesliebreame Captain   Posted: 11 months ago
both i think thanks !!!

yacht by lesliebreame Captain   Posted: 11 months ago
more hooliganism from that power boat man !!! the cruiser is an ebay purchase and is carved from solid. it has a TAYCOL motor double special from the 1950's.

yacht by lesliebreame Captain   Posted: 11 months ago
i thought that power should give way to sail !!! you can have a lot of fun boating without spending much. this little Americas Cup yacht cost me a fiver in the flea market and after fitting a rudder servo it is brilliant fun !! Les Breame

Miss England 6 by lesliebreame Captain   Posted: 11 months ago

schumschimmer by lesliebreame Captain   Posted: 12 months ago

schumschimmer by lesliebreame Captain   Posted: 12 months ago
i reckon a brick could be hydroplaned if you had enough power !!!! i love experimenting with stuff and always recommend others to try it. nothing ventured nothing gained as they say !!
