    May be of some interest.
    The Titanic from the search I made will sail some time in 2022.
    Maiden voyage will be from Dubai to Southampton.
    Wouldn't that be a wonderful voyage if everyone on board were to dress in the cloths of period.
    No indication of cost as of yet.Check out google for more info.

    Received the fans for the project.Set up and powered the fan on 12 v to test them.Then used a 9 v supply that worked well.The fan will now have on-off switch have a separate power source from the ultra sonic mister.
    Will now work on the 24v power for the mister.

    There are hobby shops for plans (Sarik hobbies and Cornwall model boats) are two I have used. The best I can offer is to go on line to view their offerings see if any think comes close.

    Hi Nerys. And so the pandemic has take more tole on the world as cruise ships out of service become a liability to their owners.I fear more ships will go to the scrape yard over the next few months.
    My worry for the hospitality industry is the time it will take to grow when travel begins again.
    Now we just think of being able to see each other again never mind going on a cruise.
    Time is not on the side of the cruise ships.

    Hi Martin and Graham. Unfortunately the ultra sonic mist generator is 24 v thous the need for two batteries in series for 24v. Question? Would a step down converter from 24v to 6v if used would it slow the fan down.

    After going on line for info I'm better equipped to make up a harness to use two batteries in series.
    Question?Will that be to much power to run a 12v fan and if so is this were I would need a step down converter.
    Finding out electrical on line is great until I find more related to the first problem back to square one.
    No wonder some call electrical the Black Arts.

    Sounds as if Martin has a good idea Nerys.You being an excellent builder has helped you to fix and make items for this boat,Better plans and instructions would not of made that necessary.
    From the posts you have given I believe a novice builder would have been lost as how to proceed with the build and may just give up.
    I believe Deans needs to be made aware of this build.

    Hi Nerys It's a shame Deans is not able to upgrade there instructions.From what I read they build all the boats first to make sure of the build.
    In my mind it is their loss for not looking at better instructions.

    Nerys the experience you are having with this Deans kit will help others.
    This is not your first build and if you find it difficult to use the instruction what would a novice be able to do.
    Your posts will be a good ya or nay for us to determine if we would buy a Deans kit.

    Well said Martin.
    The problem for me is this covid war is wining and some still refuse to take it as deadly.
    The more people respect the need to stay at home wear a mask if you have to go out.
    The better you protect yourself the more you protect others.
    Not sure how to break through to the people who think it's fake or feel they can't stay apart from one another.
    We are social animals and do need to be with each other if we stay strong and continue to help each other in this fight time will come when we can get together.
    My wish would be that we.At the end of this war could get together and congratulate each other face to face.
    The strength we show now will help all of us to get to a better place.

    Hi Martin the idea came from Wicksteed Park MBC hints and tips from the man cave.Smoke generator. A member posted his building of the generator with items needed with pictures.
    I liked the concept and ordered the parts need.I have started to build the unit and wanted to figure out plus and minus of the fan and mister before hand for the wiring to power.The ultrasonic mister has arrived but there is no indication of plus or minus on the unit to help me with wiring it up.
    Hope this helps a bit Martin.

    The project will hopefully be a smoking unit when finished.The problem I'm having is figuring out the + and - of the misting unit and fan.I have worked out how to wire them up for power but neither unit is marked for +or- is there a way to find out or will it matter when wiring to power.
    Any help please.

    The project for a smoke machine the write up calls for a potentiometer set up before the 12v fan.
    My question is does the pot go on the + side (red) and out the +(red) side of the pot.
    The on line wiring I found let me know the two posts either side of center are +(red) and either one can be used for input.
    The center is output.
    Did I get this right.
    Help please.
