A unique feature on the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire was the gang plank mounted on the bow. So it just has to be added. The wire gallows brackets will have to be made to look like angle iron later. Don't tell Ronald Mc I have his stirring sticks. Geoff

I knew there had to be something there that was useful.

I also used the sticks (cut in half ) for the top layer of the gratings. The bottom layer from the packs I purchased. Twice as big a area . I am a cheap skate. Geoff

The gang plank in position. Raised and lowered. Don't think I will make it radio controlled as I hope I will not be running up on an beaches. Geoff

This is just for you Derek I'm sure I am still being watched. In the thread on the boiler build I proposed to place the separator in the top of the boiler. My thoughts being,  that the oil from the engine along with any condensation would vaporize, increasing the smoke-steam from the funnel. The question now is would steam oil vaporize at this temperature? In the photos although it doesn't look like it the bottom of the separator is sealed by a plate. The 1/4" pipe will go up the chimney. the long 5/32" from engine and the short 5/32" is for emptying the separator. That is if the experiment doesn't work. Geoff

Hi PD's....& RGY asks... "would steam oil vaporize at this temperature?"   :o

mmmmmmmmmmm . = I think the exhaust steam will be carried up by the boiler gas draft...however the residue oil may  condense & fall as droplets of oil back down into the top of the boiler  :-[

This may the spit & smoke....but also if enough in volume will form an oil skin on the boiler internals which may in turn create hot spots.... :crash

1. Maybe the best way is to get a frying pan on the kitchen stove @ approx 150 degrees C & add a few drops of steam oil & note what happens... :goodluck :oops :sorry but :shhh your good wife prior to your experiements
2. GOOGLE...the flash point of Grade 460 steam oil

No Derek where we are at cross purposes is it is a water tube boiler. If anyone else is looking the drawing will explain. Good idea, I will experiment to see the temperature steam oil will vaporize. Geoff

Well done Geoff, almost at the stage where some on the water testing can be done! Mind, if your local sailing water is like ours, you'll have to fit skis! Our lake has about 6" of ice on it :(

Regards
Eddy

Just had a small success. My daughter had decided to get married church and hotel booked!!! :sobbing Why cry that is supposed to be the mothers job. Sept 3th, no good for me, as that is the day I will be on my way to PADDLE DAY 2011. Well the shot gun worked, so the big day will be 14 May. :beer  All I have to do now is get the Duke sorted. I know traction engines aren't even able to float, but that is what I've been doing since christmas. R.G.Y.
