Outstanding! I have the engine and boiler, just need the condenser and Lubricator. Did you purchase these or make them? Also, where did you get your fittings?

Did you build the hull over a mold?

What an addition to this site! Many thanks for the posting.

Very nice little launch. I have the same engine and might do something along these lines too.
