Had another look at the gas canister! It was at 60 degrees, through it did look like 45 in the photo. Did a bit of fettling to a frame ( butchered it right out) now the canister is at 85 degrees, so will be OK. Might have to make the steps removable to get to the tap though.  Geoff

mmmmmmmmm PS's....I can see an isolicies triangle depicted there RGY...but only on the axis of the gas discharge threaded tube..... :c002

But if you increase the base angle to 85 degrees from the horizontal you must exacerbate the potential for  :06 - Derek

Unfortunately I had sent for the grating kits before mick told me about the fly screen trick. So I have to use them :-[ anyway they look OK. Couldn't cover the entire stern in grating as there has to be a davit there. this was used when beach landing to retrieve the kedge. The black spot on the deck is the posision of the capstan. Still plodding on with the plating. I am using impact adhesive, the trick is let it dry don't be in to much hurry. Have another job going at the same time. If any edges lift I run a little super glue in under and holed it down till stuck. Geoff

... If Carlsberg did paddlers


Comming together Geoff, wooden gratings do look more realistic and nicely done.
Cheers,
Kim


I'll get my coat ...  ;D

Flushed with the success of the gratings. I am contemplating constructing the bridge deck and walkway around the funnel with them. Just like on SS Great Britain. This can't be seen from photos I have. But I think it will be in character. As Duke is a very old fashioned design. Even for 1896. Geoff

Thank you Eddy. I did have this number and had rung it a few times over the last week, but was unable to get a response. However I have just placed my order. Geoff

The cost of this boat is getting out of control.  119 for the boiler, 20 engine, 5 balsa, 16.50 grating, 36.50 stanchions, 15 glue. Beer, cider and larger 70. Total so far 282.
No construction for a time.
Sailed Glen Usk yesterday, last sail 9 months ago. Couldn't get steam up, so I thought then the safety valve blow. The pressure gauge wasn't working! apart from that a good day.
