Thank you David.   :}

No, she does not steer at all.  This is due to the geared motor driving the paddles too slowly to create a water flow.  (even at full throttle)

Today I swopped the geared motor for a direct drive version of a 500 size motor.  By cracky !!!!  the captain could go water skiing.  I'm now re-programming the radio to reduce the speed on forwards and reverse in case the radio gets into other drivers hands.

All in all, she looked the part when on the water belching smoke.  Now to get the calliope playing as well.  Tape recording all ready to go in.

She looks just as good on the trolley as in the water!

I can't wait to see a video of her steaming along with her organs playing  :-))
