    Thanks guys !!!!As far as sinking goes there isn't anything in the boat to help keep it a
    float. If it gets swamped it's gonna go down. I only plan on running it on ideal days. We
    aren't going to see ...

    [QUOTE=apointofview;296261]So I worked on all the problems that showed up on the first run and
    then took it back out for another test. I found a better pond for this run and had a very good
    outing. Al...

    Thanks everyone! It did look good out there. It wasn't too peaceful in my head but it did
    accomplish what the original goal was , to carry it with one arm and just plop it in the pond.
    I guess the big...

    The maiden voyage is over ! I took it out to the little city pond last night and set her loose.
    The boat worked and did putt around a little bit but it was a very short outing. The water
    level was in ...

    That's a good point this is a slow paced type of boat isn't it. If it will move at 10-20psi in
    the pond then that's all the better. Bench runs showed me that it runs smoother at low pressure
    and it's ...

    I am going to eventually change something but not sure what at the moment. The valve works fine
    as it is until the pressure gets around 30psi. At that point it gets enough push from the steam
    to lift ...

    Thanks guys ! I just about have it wrapped up, just a small item but it has been bugging me
    since I built the control valve for the engine. It needed a better looking nut on the center
    post that holds...

    That is a beautiful engine you have built ! Congratulations !! Thanks for taking the time to
    take pictures and document your work. It's a great help to me to see how other guys carve away
    at metal and...

    Ok, I put out an ad for someone brave enough to take an unproven boat out to sea, I mean pond,
    and put it through its paces. This is who showed up. He said he came from an old closet clothes
    poll and ...
