There is a well known design for a launch that uses the D10 but at 51" long may be a bit big as steamboatmodel says, its called teh "Wide Awake" steam launch. Ex member from here Ramon is making a very nice one at the moment. The stuart 10 range of engines have been used in many model marine applications over the years as have their larger engines in both model and full size.
I am interested in diving into a build for the very first time. I am amateur with 12x36 Asian lathe, 3.5" Taig and Craftex round column mill drill. Could soeone on the string let me know if there is an opportunity to get involve with a build?
