Steam Boats - web site with pictures and info


Any interest in steam boats from this group?

I am currently building a Krick Victoria with a Cheddar Puffin steam
engine. Information on doing this seems rare so I am charting my
progress on the web with photographs and links to help others that
might try this.

See details at:

and more specifically

Please post any replies to this NG and do not reply direct - thanks.

Re: Steam Boats - web site with pictures and info

Hi Duncan, I presently have one steamboat. The Lady Sarah steam launch from
a Sovereign Models kit in the UK. It is powered by a twin cylinder steam
engine from Marten,Howes and Baylis. This was built when they were producing
their own steam engines. I'm using a vertical, gas fired boiler. I build my
own boilers.
This winter, I am going to build the "Brooklyn", a steam railroad tug
from Dumas Models, and plan on steam power. As well, I have decided to
refurbish my steam launch, after which, it will be relegated to a display
case. KC
