The boat was steam tested recently and it worked excellent. Everything works and no leaks. This is a model of a typical hard working harbor "victualling" boat of the late 1800's/ early 1900's.
The powerful Clyde engine is a two cylinder self starting unit that can easily power this 3ft hull at pressure even less than 20 psi. The engine is equipped with a steam control valve, a displacement lubricator, steam/oil separator, brass propeller and steel drive shaft. The 500ml boiler is equipped with, pressure gauge, water level gauge, safety valve, and a very nice whistle. The "clinker" hull is a sturdy fiber glass unit of 36 inches in length and beam width is 11 inches.
The butane burner has a "Ronson" style refill valve and has a burn time of 25 minutes. The 3 Channel, 2.4Ghz radio and receiver controls the rudder servo, the throttle servo (speed/forward/reverse) and the whistle servo. The engine and boiler baseplate can be easily removed (a single nut) for servicing. The item "Model Steam Boat - Very Nice" is in sale since Sunday, September 5, 2021.
