In need of a steam plant
« on: March 27, 2009, 12:09:02 PM »

Hello all (From NY)  I am having what I call the boat blues <:(  Over the winter I built a steam tug boat kit.. After months of hard work the engine it calls for just don't have enough grunt.  So I purchased a Kirk Victoria...  I am now having trouble finding a affordable Power pant for her.  I have checked all over the web and seen so many.  I have 800.00 US dollars for one.
Please if anyone knows of some sites I can search please post it for me.  I need to be in the water soon.  Thanks to all
