The crew are from George Turner Models, 1:12 scale resin figures.

Steam Patrol Boat 'Dunlin' - Posted: 8 years ago by ianed57
mdlbt.com/1865   >> Permalink
This boat was scratch built from Harold Underhill plans, available still from Brown,Son and Ferguson. The hull was mahogany on 6mm ply frames. The engine was a Caton from Maxwell Hemmens supplied bya gas-fired Cheddar Puffin boiler. The propeller was a two Inch four bladed brass job from Rivabo I think. The displacement of the boat Is 25lb- a bit of a lump to carry to the water but It does work well once In the water. She has now been converted to electric using a MFA geared 540 type motor witha 7.5ah lead acid gel cell. Looking again at this video I begin to wish I had left It as steam but there Is something to be said for 'switch on and go'.
I started building the boat In the mid nineties and It has now had a repaint- It always been a favourite. This video was taken In the early noughties at Crealy In Exeter.

Steam Launch Wild Rose - Posted: 8 years ago by ianed57

Steam launch designed and built by me. I used a computer program called Plyboats to design It and It Is a double chine ply hull. The power plant Is a twin cylinder Cheddar engine, the Pelican I believe, which was a vee twin. The boiler was designed and built by me being a 3'' dia vertical firetube, gas fired.
This video was taken at Crealy In Exeter one summer evening In 2003 as a fairly new boat. She Is now In need of a little TLC.

fast gets faster! - Posted: 8 years ago by pmdevlin

gearbox fitted, tested today with 8.4v graupner, running on 19.2v nimh. GPS Data logger Installed, measured at 14.63mph, sound like a jet turbine!!, and this video was the slower of the 2 props tested.
Improvements with gearbox, motor Is stone cold (it Is water cooled, but was still hot as direct drive) , quieter, longer run time, esc cold, now able to upgrade from 2 blade 40mm prop to 3 blade, and possibly 4 blade, amp draw much less. Video taken at Newsham Park, Liverpool. Handling Is now difficult, as Its going way too fast, but Its great fun! and might go faster, with the motor thats been fited tonight, watch this space!!

He who dare's Rodney , he who dares ! 😎 😎
Response by pmdevlin on the 2 years ago
well that was the distant memory of brushed motors!, way back when we had gas lanterns Instead of LED's 😀

Unfortunately I cant remember the ratio, I think It was 2:1 from memory. It was later converted to brushless. Has not been run for two years since the bigger brother fireboat came along. I keep thinking just put a brushed motor back In It, and have plodding speed, It looks silly doing all that porpoising, and the bigger brother can give me my speed fix 😁
Response by CraigRobotham on the 2 years ago
Maybe a little more bow weight would stop the problem , my Spearfish used to do that all I did was put lipo length ways and It stopped , but yeah If your happy with the bigger being the faster then go for It 😊
