Hi MJM, thanks for the info....I have seen those covers on swimming pools but just thought they were to keep leaves off the water ..a bit like those wrong sort of leaves that fall on the railway lines here in Blighty !!... so regarding evaporation.. if the water is warming up but the evaporation is slowed down with a small opening is there some sort of complicated dissipation of energy doing something mysterious ??

Cletus and Zee---A bit off topic here, but not much. I built the Cretors Popcorn engine based on Stu Harts design, but changed to inches with a few very slight modifications. It ran so well that I immediately built two more for a "Steam Donkey Winch". The winch engines were very close to the original Popcorn design but with changes to the cross slide for a different mounting style. I had reason to track down this image today to answer a question on a different forum, but I thought you guys might get a kick out of the surprising places that engine showed up.---Brian

Thanks Craig, and today was a bit cooler even. I had to come in after a while even so. The humidity is terrible.
