These two boats were refurbished by Kalamunda. The first Is a Lesro Sportsman and the second a NorStar Wave Rider. The Sportsman has a Graupner 700 on 8.6v and the WaveRider a brushless motor. The on board camera was arranged by Kalamunda and other video shot by Ianed57. The water Is at Crealy, Exeter, the home of Exeter and District Model Boat Club.
Response by hammer on the 5 years ago
Very sad the fishermen have taken over Crealy lake. No more model boats.
Response by ianed57 on the 5 years ago
It Is Indeed sad and these videos remind us of happy times spent there. We srtuggle to find a suitable alternative. As the old song says-'You don't know what you've got 'til It's gone!'.

Appologies for camera Inaccuracy, but when you are trying to control the boat and film, things get a wee bit erratic!, but nevertheless, finally got some moving footage of my build.

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.
