African Queen - Posted: 9 days ago by lesliebreame
mdlbt.com/27642   >> Permalink
Video shows two African Queen boats produced by Modeen of Manchester in the 1980's. Ron Needham took over my boat business and developed his own lovely range of boats and this African Queen was one of them. He supplied kits only so you can expect variations in them. These two i have rebuilt from derelicts .One has the LEE engine and the other is older with the Stuart Turner one. Les Breame

This is a re-issue of my previous post as the link to the video failed.
It shows a Sunday morning's sailing at WMBC through the 'eyes' of my 46inch Perkasa.
Details of the Club can be found here:

Model Boat US Coast Guard. Phon AC motors, batteries 2 pcs Li-Po 4000 mA.
Response by RHBaker on the 13 days ago
Very nice vessel, well done.
From the turning radius and stability, suspect the stabilizer fins operate.
Would appreciate details; particularly dimensions and weight. Rather hoping my Damen Stan 4207 which is a similar craft will perform as well. That model is untried as yet.

HMS Triumph - Trafalgar Class Submarine at Albert Park Lake, Melbourne. There is a previous post with this submarine. It is scratch built and uses Engel piston tanks as its diving system. It has been in operation over 30 years. This is the first time it has carried a camera.

One of my Old Trafford paddle steamers enhanced by my mate Duncan Laurimer and sailing on the put up pond at Tilford Rural Life Centre yesterday. Good fun was had by all !! The boiler is tablet fired [3 halves ] and is half filled with 65ml of water. Engine is single oscillator with 16:1 spur gearbox. Les Breame

"Sweet Sue" - Posted: 18 days ago by sandkb

Video of the first start-up and test of "Sweet Sue" in dry dock. All went well ! Had two sails on water since.I built this vessel from scratch using a pre made clinker fibreglass hull purchased from Mini Steam Australia. The engine is an oscillating twin cylinder and the boiler is a 3" Centre Flue Gas Fired Vertical Boiler from "Miniature Steam". The gas tank is a 1-1/2" vertical refillable GasTank also from Miniature Steam Pty. Australia. The vessel is radio controlled with the skipper appearing to control the rudder. It has a smoke generator and a rc controlled steam whistle.

Looking good Kevin. I have a similar oscillator and it runs well on 20psi max and gives about half an hours steaming on a similar sized boiler.

Response by sandkb on the 18 days ago
This boiler runs at around 60psi ! do you think that is a little high ? I was a little concerned by the amount of steam that is being generated as you may have noticed in the video. I can adjust the intensity of the flame inside the boiler so that a lower head of steam is generated, what do you think ?
Kevin
Response by Dave M on the 18 days ago
Hi Kevin
Yes that's what I do. I am always amazed at the power the oscillator generates and once rotating very little steam is required to maintain speed. Then again it's not for windy or rough conditions. I would try gradually reducing the pressure until the engine show signs of stopping and then increase by a couple of psi to ensure safe running. You do not need to run the boiler at its max rated pressure when the escape valve will be opening just at a level that replaces what the engine uses. Can we have another video with the steam whistle sounding?
