Very nice! I hope you are gonna splash it before everything freezes!
Afraid it won't get wet from the bottom this year. Still need to assemble the paddle wheels and rudders.
But we're getting closer all the time.
This is the first time I've looked at this thread. This is one hell of a project. Nice work gentlemen !
Something to look forward to in spring!
Looking great Greg...thanks for the update and uploading the video of the powerplant in operation.
It's all coming together for you guys nicely.
Good luck on the build.
Beautiful dog you have there. I see he makes sure you are getting it done.
Sounds about right, bon voyage.
Talk about a project. Very nice build so far looks like it will be a really Kool Kraft. Are you guys going to have a ship launching ceremony? I bet lots of kids ,,, old ones,,, would love it. I'm sure I would . What a great way to spend time these older guys out work the pure lazy younger generation. I enjoyed the vids
Thank you from an older kid.
A couple of us got together today and finished assembling the hubs for the paddle wheels. Still lots of welding to do. The hub is about 2 feet in diameter and about 8 inches wide, the blades will be 16 wide so the spokes need to splay out to support them. The outside face is slotted between the tapered braces that carry the spokes, this allows the disk to form a slight cone.
Spring thaw is just around the corner.
