    To come
    Scratch built Steam launch. The plant was in my first steam build never happy with the final job.
    New Borkum engine
    Chiltern steam engine replaced Graham engine. Rick
    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
    Puffer
    The puffer is a scratch built boat I had started 2 years ago.Ready to go for water tests and ballast if needed. Rick
    Scratch built Borkum
    Designed from pictures and video of the Krick model.
    Hellen
    This one is a kit I built .
    USGA Rescue
    This one was built when I got her .The paint job looked like someone had why to much paint and used it all. Striped it down to a clean surface rebuilt all railings and pilot house repainted and added decals.
    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
    Miranda
    These are better. Rick

    A project I'm looking at is the Dumas Lord Nelson Victory tug. The purchase price is rather high so I am looking for a plan if not of the Dumas boat something close to the look of the tug.

    Good you are getting away Nerys. That is a lot of boat to move around. Building boats is great but the size and weight must come into the final decision on how big a boat to build. As we get younger transportation comes more into what we build.

    We in Canada are reaching 80% single vaccines and 50% second doses. Nancy and I will be wearing masks going into shops and dinning. For me we may be nearing a safe return to some or a new form of the past. But until the rest of the world gets vaccinated or vaccines none of us are really safe. Please keep yourself safe and that keeps others safe.
