Well while I'm pondering the crew of my boat some more work has gotten done. The throttle linkage has been figured out and most of it is done. All that is left is to mount a servo and a rod from it to the bellcrank that is mounted on the water tank. I have to wait on the captain to see what room I have. I want to have his hand on the throttle so his arm moves with power changes. The other arm will be on the tiller. At least that's the plan.

Ok next up was a valve to control the new whistle. It is another make it up as I go part and it came out pretty good. It leaks a tiny bit so a little work on the sealing surface is in order but overall it works fine and better yet my whistle still works on steam. The pitch went up a little vs the compressed air.
I tried using a rubber check ball because it seals up so easily, but it didn't like the heat so stainless it will be.
