Dave,
I thought of you when I stumbled apon a document on steam boat guidelines written by the Northwest Steam Society.

I know you know this stuff but it might be helpful for another builder.

Wow that is amazing!  You must enjoy it very much.  Is there a whistle?  Childish minds want to know

Hey Dan,

My tubular gage glass has been updated to a guarded glass with safety checks



My son wants to sit back aft, so had to do it.
