    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

    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

    Only a thought make a cardboard template from the floor slowly cut the cardboard to see how much you may have to trim to fit.
    When you get the cardboard to fit lay it on the back side of the floor to judge how much you need to trim.
    When you have the area to trim slowly sand the edges down to fit. Rick

    The last few months have gone by and the time is right to update you my friends of the move to my new home.
    Having to split from my old life and wife. We separated and I purchased a new dwelling a three bedroom highrise condo appartment.I moved in Jan 10th and have been unpacking since.Two of the bedrooms and living area are now set up. The third bedroom was used to store all items not needed right away.I am slowly getting to my hobby room will soon be able to build again.

    A good friend has been reaching out to me at this time of year and my thought went to all on this site. We in posting and helping each other have become friends who support and advise when needed. A kind word on a build , a pat on the back for a job well done,an incouraging word if someone is not well. This holliday season is for most a time of joy and family. I'm so glad to be part of this family of friends. Keep being kind to one another reach out to a friend who my need a kind word.

    For me it's like a PBS station. They show a program and part way into the broadcast it stops to ask for donations a good way to get support for thier continuing broadcasts.
    I do believe a little support goes a long way.
