Hi Derek,

the RPM with this rigid wheel may be best between 80 to 120. When more, kavitation take place and the propulsion becomes less.

Hi Thomas,

Great pictures of the Ville de Bruges which I was able to see "live" in your test equipment.

I like picture #3 best. She looks very much like the real thing.

Beautiful.  I like how you extended the connecting rods of the engine to reach the paddle wheel.
