Scratch-built paddler by Pete Smith. Model was built fom Richard Webb's MAP plans and electrically powered. Pete added a redundant IOM keel cut down to provide extra stability and the boat now performs very well having suffered the vices of most model paddle steamers. The boat Is 54 1/2 Ins long and 13 1/2 Ins beam, plank on frame construction.

Steam Patrol Boat 'Dunlin' - Posted: 9 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: 9 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.
