Out of interest how are you powering it I was about to buy one ....well waited years for it to be released .saw it at cheddar when they first tested the hull, long long time ago,I bought a Proteus for it then just before it was released I spoke to Brian and he said they where  not using steam as it took to long to re rig    ,,,so decided against it  ..Peter

I'm powering it by electric.

It was recommended to me not to use steam,  mainly as it is such a pretty boat that the steam plant would only get it too mucky and tarnished.  I also think there was an underlying reason of heat dissipation and the effects on deck and superstructure.

wise move on going electric, wouldnt want to make a mess of the deck
you could always buy a JJC unit for the "smoke" effect aswell.

If it floats I'll  build it, if it sinks its a sub either way its in the water so I'm content.
