No content Wes. Get some sleep and try again.

There was content this morning (UK) Mike, I clicked the link and saw the pics. A bit odd, what happened to it?

Interesting video, that's a serious lot of horse power for a boat that size. With that big a boiler I doubt the Navy K would ever run out of steam. Do you happen to know where the boiler came from Wes?

Yes. She sure hauls the mail with that power plant.
The boiler is a B&W style watertube built by Andrew VanLuenen of Washington state.

Quite a powerhouse! JJ could be a serious work boat with that boiler/engine combination.
I see the Washington State (USA) registration numbers, but cannot see if the other two steam launches are also WA State.
Location? Anyone know? Palm trees make me think NOT in the lower Skagit River, WA.

Sure makes me anxious to get my new-to-me Steam Thistle on the waters.
I'm rebuilding the trailer axle spring mountings now. This should lift the transom above road-strike altitude!

Very astute observation.
That was filmed tat the 2017 California Delta Steamboat Meet near Isleton, California. Filmed it onboard of course, as well as from my father's boat. I think this year will be the 45th anniversary of that meet.

Good luck with your modifications. Some boats suffer from being too high on their trailers... Others the opposite. Nothing like scraping the prop or skeg on the launch ramp!
