Wattle Open Steam Launch Self-assembly Kit
The main image shows the finished product - without steam plants. Note that the walnut finish shown on the benches in the following images is for display purposes only. The bench materials supplied have a natural wood finish that can be coated at customer discretion. The kit includes the propeller, propeller shaft and related couplings.
Also please note that boat kit components, mainly those related to mounting the engine (P/N's 1257,1244,1256 & 1243) are specific to Minature Steam (MSM) engines.
The kit enables the assembly of the boat kit before having to purchase the steam plant. Two steam plant options are provided in the assembly kit components. A 3" Vertical boiler steam plant is installed in the image following. More detailed pictures of this plant and the alternative 3" Horizontal boiler steam plant can be seen in the opening pages of the Draft Assembly Instructions link following.
A draft of the assembly instructions can be read at Draft Assembly Instructions. This provides much more information about the kit than can be set out here. A copy of the finalised version will accompany the order.
The base hull is the P/N 1231 - 885mm Clinker Design GRP Boat Hull. This can be bought separately for fit-out by the adventurous!
The optional steam plants, purchased separately, are P/N 4049 3" Vertical Boiler and P/N 4050 3" Horizontal Boiler steam plants, details of which can be studied elsewhere in this website.
