    Disclaimer, any building of boilers should first be checked by a professional boiler maker.

    Wife and I made these tin boats the last months.
    First and biggest is a replica of the Edmund Fitzgerald.

    Thanks , that`s steam not smoke coming out, in the Fitz it makes it look like smoke out of the smoke stack.

    Steam engines are neat! I had one when I was a kid back in the 50's although it wasn't attached to a ship. It believe it came with a tin of Sterno.

    Good job on the ships Wind! :yessmiley:

    Do I see a "substantial" addition to the family in MV10679?

    We bought a Newfoundland to try and make ourselves feel better from loosing Snoopy but it didn`t work out so I gave him away.

    Sorry it didn't work out Wind ... After you told us about Snoopy I found myself scouring the net looking for found dogs that matched his description.

    You thought about getting another snoopy-dog? I saw this on the net the other day and thought of you guys ...

    I`m still devastated about Snoop dog, I love him very much and miss him.
    We decided not to get another dog for a while.

    I recognized the African Queen from the canopy before I read the name and noticed the cases of Gin tucked in the bow ... :fish[1]:

    The Queen, the Fitz and the PT boat are my favorites.

    I like the PT boat as well but it needs a torpedo tube on either side ... The paddle-wheeler is nice as well ... quiet ... that's similar to the steam engine I had as a kid ...
