    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

    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 hear people say go for a take away and for some it's take out but which ever way we say it we not only get our fix in we help keep some one open.Most of us will not go for a sit down meal but we can order and go pick up.So if you are out for a bit of fresh air do go for that fry up or burger or what ever your taste buds want.

    I have a plan of a small open launch I am trying to resize to the Borkum. From the picture and write up of the kit the length is 31.6" and width is 11.6" so a start.If any one has done the kit or knows where I can get some more measurements it would be a big help.Depth,distance between frames and anything else that may help.

    I found two boat kits by Krick on the Cornwall model boat site 1 the Alexandra steam launch and 2 the Borkum island supply vessel.Both would make good open boats for live steam.The kits are a little above my price range,Looking at each I know I can build one of them if I can find a plan.My question is are there plans that may like look like either of these kits.

    Ours was a bucket of blue steam and a left handed monkey wrench.The other was to send the new guy back to the shop for a long (weight) wait.At the shop they would tell him to hold on and they would check.Coming back a time later and sending him back saying they only had short waits (weights) Some caught on right away but every once in a while it took time.

    I don't have a meter to check if batteries are any good. Question I have is there a meter that may do the job and not break the bank.The other is if after charging the battery is very hot is that indicator that a cell my be gone or going.

    The first clues that we my be able to get out soon and launch our boats is the flattening of virus cases and the opening of some areas. Here in Ont. parks and golf courses have opened so as long as the sun shine we are able to get out.I hope all are doing well and we can start to slowly get our boats in the water.

    A friend whom I play golf with was born 1936 Holland he tells of trying to find a bit of coal to cook with and stay warm hiding from the war around them.Many more stories of how they survived. When I look at what we are doing to help our countries and our cities to survive this pandemic it is small but needed.I don't like it but this is our war and to cry about it in my mind only makes it harder.For me there are many people over the years who have gone through more and harder time.Only my thoughts .
