i wasn't aware you were putting together a steam launch. i wouldn't recommend the stuart 10's for that sort of thing.

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.

much better options out there for sure.

i am looking for a hull 36" or better for a project. i have boilers and engines, so i really just need a hull. perhaps you know of one?

i ask because your name suggests you may know a thing or two about this sort of thing.
It was me who said 10D for a launch... but really I meant tug. Would you be interested in scratch building? If so there are many plans you can use depending on type you want to build.

Hello.
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?
Thanks
Howie in MB

got a bit side tracked the last year. perhaps we could resume this thread and build something collectively?

i have yet to build anything IC, so i'd love to start there. i have so many plans, let me have a look and post a few of them.
