Can you identify this hull?
« on: July 11, 2021, 10:09:07 pm »

Can anyone identify this hull? 

It appears to be a LARGE version of one I have seen before. 
but I can not seem to name it.

60" long   15" Beam 

I am contemplating doing something with it. 

Regards,
Jim

Bonjour James,
I don not recognize any MH&B model, this is not a proof  :} never mind, this hull is absolutely beautiful and deseves a vertical boiler steam plant type Kingdon with a Stephenson 3 - 5 cm3 :-))

I know she is not an MH&B hull.   
They are slimmer and a bit shorter. 
I have a Topaz, and the Opal is in the same size range. 

She may be from Loyalhanna Shipyards.   
Mr.Zippy's example comes from there. 
And if you can navigate their absolutely horrible website, there are
a couple of possible hulls. 

This one is GRP with a very well finished interior. 

I am still unsure if I will build her out.  I have a couple of boilers,
and a new engine that might fit. 

Just need to sell the two engines I have listed e-bay. 
Hint-Hint 

There may be more to come, I welcome all comments. 

Regards,Jim

I really do not have a clue where she came from. 
I am going to have to find the right steam plant for her. 

The scale is complicated,  I am afraid most of my engines will be
too small. 

Both in size and capacity. 

So it may have to wait until I finish my next one. 

It is a Stuart Compound Twin. 
I am about 1/3 of the way thru it.

Bonjour James,
Great future steam machine but a little concern, the launch has not a variable pitch prppeller, would you install a little gear box tp manage the reverse ?

Bonjour Raphael,

The Compound Twin will have Stevenson Reversing Gear installed. 
(I am not sure why it is called "reversing gear" when there are no gears involved!)   %)

Now thatís a lovely looking engine about which I have limited knowledge so it would be nice to see it up and working. Do these engines need additional work or mechanism to make it self starting? I think the steam go from the smaller high pressure cyl to the second larger lower pressure cylinder so the steam is used twice which makes it economic on steam but in effect it acts as a single cyl engine that if stopped at the top or bottom of the stroke means itís unlikely to self start?

Bonjour Dave,
Your knowledge is correct, a compound can stop at the top or the botton of the HP cylinder. However, by playing with the Stephenson slide valve, it slightly shifts this breakpoint and the machine finally starts again.
Other possibility, on my triple expansion, I have added a secondary valve to inject steam in the MP cylinder and avoid the problem because I was told it was done on large steam machines : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KPt0ouL8kzc

Dave and Raphael,
I was told the concept was called a "simpling valve"  which can start the engine by
routing the steam to the LP (large) cylinder input and then get turned off after the rev-up. 
It basically turns the engine into a twin cylinder - like Jerry's and then switches back to the
expansion process. 

My build started on a Machinist Forum, I will probably finish it there.
https://www.homemodelenginemachinist.com/threads/stuart-compound-twin-build.31409/ 

When I get it done I will pick this thread up again.
Then we can see how the craft comes together.

Regards,Jim

Jim, that Stuart compound looks perfect for the hull. What boiler are you going to use?

Well,   

I have Two boilers in stock right now. 

Both are on the large side. 
Both are from Mike Abbott at Maccsteam. 

The first holds about 1 liter and I have been using on a D10.  (just sold)
So I am going to mount it to a brass tray and add the new MB4 - quad cylinder. 

The second hold about 1.5 liter, has dual burners, and has an operating pressure of 90 PSI. 
I think this one will work well for the Compound.  I will put it all on another tray so I can
swap the Steam plants in and out.   Plus it will make the boat easier to move around. 


More to come.

Please look at the "For Sale" section of the forum.
