    Billings Progress
    Seven years ago this boat was given to me making it my first boat. Turned out to be a good starter boat as the hull was almost finished. Having painted it the way the write up seamed to say. Then ready to run and into the water. The boat being top heavy it tipped and took on water. Back to the work bench and striped and left to sit until this year. The boat is almost finished needs rudder motor and ballast Rick

    The puffer is a scratch built boat I had started 2 years ago.Ready to go for water tests and ballast if needed. Rick

    Fairplay
    This was a strip down and repair.
    First steam boat
    I was sent the steam plant by one on our members.It is a freelance steam launch as I lengthened the boat to fit the boiler and engine.The steam boiler and engine are the Maxwell Hemmens Canton plant.It has been run on water and held 30 psi for allmost 20 min. Rick
    Steam engine
    These three show the lever in each position from the base top lower and center .Center is full stop,top is full foreword and bottom is full reverse and notches in between for slower speeds Rick
    steam engine
    Graham TV1 STEAM ENGINE as the engine sits left is the prop side and the lever is in the up position the center post has notches in for speed control as the lever moves up and down for direction .I hope this helps Doug. Rick

    When I listen to the number of heads of state Primeministers ,Presidents and world leaders I think of two that stand out. Canada's Primeminister Justin Trudeau his father PET. US presidents GW Bush and GHW Bush. They had the honor of being presented to the Queen as leaders of their countries. You would fill a room with photos and stories of the many leaders she met with.
    Such an outstanding legacy to leave the world.

    So right Roy. I believe no matter how good the builder he or she will see someone elses build and like the work done.
    Jon do keep on building the boat do the best job on the build you can. In the end you will be happy with how it turns out.

    Sorry to hear of the problem.
    Not sure if you are able to remove the rudder if so unhook the shaft from the motor and pull the shaft that way. Put in water proof grease and reinstall the shaft and rudder the grease should help to hold back the water.

    The write up called for I pins to be used with the rails. With items from other builds found single stansions to use instead.
    Built the wind screeens.Two built frames with a clear plastic glued between. Still need fine tuning for fit.

    ๐Ÿ“ Water Test

    Flag
    The model boat club was invited to a weekend event at the Port Colbourne canal days. The museum had a pool set up where we ran our boats. I ran my Lord Nelson tug.Ran and water tested the commuter build both did very well. Both boats were water tight. The commuter test showed the need to lengthen the rudder done and done.

    So right. As builders it seems we are hard on ourselves. Not everyone will see the misssteps of the build. For me it's the fact that I built the boat to the best of my abillities. Give yourself a pat on the back keep building and showing.
