A fairly successful day at the pond. I accidentally unplugged the whistle servo while setting up, so it was a quiet run.

Took a few pictures while running. It was cold enough that the steam looked great and quite a few people stopped their walks to look at it.

I got a video uploaded to youtube.

Steam Launch Pond Test (1 min 18 sec)


She moves along pretty well, and a few seconds into the video you can see her run over a smaller boat.
I'm working on getting the man at the tiller to actually hold onto the tiller now.

That was great I love to see a video of the boats when the project is finished.
I solved the man holding the tiller by just ripping the arm off!
Re stuffed the coat sleave with cloth,now when the tiller moves so does his arm.The kids love it Ijust tell them it took years to train him
Onboard Martha model steam launch (3 min 0 sec)

I have since restuffed the arm to make it more realistic
