The Sterenn of KBIO.
« on: June 04, 2022, 05:51:27 pm »

Hello !
The other day, while I was shopping in my favorite department store, I saw a Caddy  full of marine plywood scraps and pieces!

I asked the man in charge what he was planning to do with all this scrap , and he said that it goes to the bin. I can have it if I want !
Bingo !
I have enough wood to build a few boats. All 's gone in my boot !
I started to wondering what to do when I realize that I have my old Martin.Bayliss steam plant waiting for a boat !
So I took an old BAT drawing out and I am gone to draw , stick and cut the ribs.
The keel taking form on the corner of the bench , I glued a couple of planks around , looking allright and ..... it was gone !!! O0
Three week later , I am here and I am expecting to sail before the end of the month.
But right now, it's time for a good pint !
CHeers !

Nice work

Old school bin warrior. Proves GRP and Styrene are not the only materials to generate a superb looking model.

Hello !
Thanks for your comments.
This weekend was studious as the storms kept me in my workshop. So I could set the deck. It is not finished yet : need sand peering.!
Have a good day !

Hello !
Here is where I am! Progressing slowly , I should be able to steam up soon ! This one will be an open launch !
(Before, I have to fix my lawn mower and it's going to take some time if my knees and my back allow it !  :embarrassed: )
Have a good evening !

Very nice KBIO O0 ......is this a quick shut off for gas?.......


1. will it be servo controlled?
2. will you insulate the steam line from the boiler to the engine?


[Take care of your back with that stupid lawn mower  <*< ...]

Hello Derek !
Thanks ! ok2
Yes the steam lines will be insulated.
Yes , the shut off gas valve is servo operated. I still have to work on it though. I am not satisfied with the locking.
As well as other details that I need to finalise and care about.....
It will be hot these days and I  shall stay in the shade  !
Keep the beer cool ! O0
Regards.
