Steam up after boiler test
« on: April 13, 2013, 06:22:15 PM »
Following a steam test at the club I just had to take advantage of the warm boiler to have a little sail.
I think the steam looks good on a cool spring day.

It would have been irresistible of course. You look nicely relaxed after the boiler passed its test.

 You must be very proud of what you have achieved, did you build the boat? Well done.

Yes the boat started life as the Wide a Wake hull but had a number of changes made to it on the way.
Its a big lump and takes some lifting.
