Waverley bits
« on: July 09, 2008, 02:51:43 AM »
I have started to collect bits of the Waverley. I managed to get one of the connecting rod brasses from the crosshead end (or small end). They were replacing the 12 of them. Did any other paddleduck members obtain one? See photo

What a great idea Robert! There can't be many people who have an actual part of the Waverley as part of their collection!!

How on earth did you hear of the parts becoming available? And who did you contact to get one?

Regards
Eddy

Hi folks, there are usualy"bits" for sale while waverley is sailing. Generaly they are kept on the engine room walkway but a word with the engineer will usualy turn something up. I have waverleys name pennant and houseflag in my collection. They are used as table covers for displaying  models at exhibitions. In our club we have the white ensign from HMS Newcastle, battle ensign from MTB 319 plus various shipping company house flags, all of which make interesting display covers. We are always looking for more. Sandystrone from this site has the name pennant from PS JEANIE DEANS. I would KILL for that one!!!!. Regards, walter.

Last time I was on Waverley (last autumn) there were a row of used engine parts on sale to anyone interested!

Eddy,
      Walter is correct. You will usually find parts for sale on the engineroom walkways or ask the engineer. I also have a slice of the mast about 3" thick and about 10" in diameter. Still to find a use for this. My other items are one paddle bracket bronze bush and a piece of broken paddle float which has since been recycled into various items.

Thanks guys, I have to honest and say that although I've been on Waverley on many occasions, I never realised that bits and pieces like this were available!

Dare I ask how much these sort of things go for?

Regards
Eddy

Eddy,
       The cost of the small pieces are usually quite reasonable. Larger or one off specials are more expensive. My crosshead bearing was quite expensive but nothing compared to the new cost. See attachment. Look out for the Waverley Donation adverts the next time you are onboard

Hi PD's

i have also one of these bearings  ;) it is marked with " LP 4 " , the price wasn't to bad 10,- GBP, and a piece from a paddle float, Robert knows where i get it from.

Also in my collection is one of these glass/brass lubricators like the ones on the Swiss paddle steamers.

I have a small minted medalion in a blue box from WAVERLEY, I think they were a limited edition about 1976        Sandy
