John ( grew machine).

Too bad about the mechanical failure. Those tins are a perfect hull to play with.  Better luck next year

My card reader died so I can't use my camera! (The usb cabel died earlier) Not a big deal since my wife has a camera, unfortunately I have no clue how it works and it needs 4 batteries instead of two and I didn't have 4 charged batteries.  

Anyway, I finally managed to take pictures! (A video has to wait for tomorrow, I hope the judges have mercy on me.)

Miss Carly Jane  - My 2013 WWPPB Entry:

Length: 31 inches
Beam: 5 inches
Engines: Twin solid boilers, plus one hybrid solid boiler with diaphragm
Steering: Servo operated rudder, Spread Spectrum Rcvr
Fuel: Ehyl Alcohol
Construction: Balsa wood
















The video below is Miss Carly Jane's initial bathtub quick test. Sorry it is so jittery. I accidentally left off the fuel tank cover, but no harm. The boat is so big, (and our tub so small) it ends the other end as it just gets started:


This next video is the first outdoor run in a pond at the local park. Again sorry for the crappy video, I was trying to hold the radio control and camera at the same time. Using ethyl alcohol, I couldn't see the flame outdoors, but I firmly believe it was not running hot enough:


There is so much more I wanted to do before entry, but it will have to wait until later. It was built for the fun of it. I really think I can tweak some more speed out of it, but I am happy it runs! I tried alcohol to keep the soot down, but I think my individual engine test were better on lamp oil.

This was my first boat build. And the first time building something for scratch out of Balsa. I had a lot of issues along the way, but got through them fortunately! The boat is named after my oldest grandaughter.

I am very happy with this forum, enjoyed this build, and seeing everyone's fine efforts. My hat is off to all of you. Looking forward to the next one!
Terry.
