    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
    I started the Miranda in Oct 2019 and the picture shows I' m almost finished just minor addition .The plans are drawn by Basil Harley.The build is double plank on frame.The boat has not been in the water yet.The steam plant has been run in and has an estimated run time of 15 min. With the engine hooked up to the prop shaft and the servos hooked up to a 2 channel unit.I ran on air pressure of 30 psi and all went well. Rick

    I've built a few Dumas boats and find them OK.Pictures of them in my Boat Harbor.
    The biggest thing with your choice is that it will be double planked hulled and the second planking is mahogany.
    For a first boat it will be a little more work for you.
    If you can find a fishing boat that you like that may be a good start.
    What ever you decide help is here .

    Things in the wrong place in my mind I believe most of us have put items in the wrong place .Then had to move them or figure a way to get at the item if access is needed.It won't be the first or last time it happens.I think it is what it is.

    I'm not sure that most of us don't have a number of boats on the go.For me it's how I work.If I have a few I'm working on it may be I'm stuck or waiting for parts or it may be waiting for good weather to go and paint.

    I have used balsa.I prefer basswood to build with as it doesn't break as easily.Sometimes just as hard to find.Lets hope we still are able to get balsa if needed.
