2785RE: [AtkinBoats] boat choice
- Aug 25, 2010
Have you considered a paddle wheeler ?
Low revs and high torque are ideal. Atkin’s “Lady of the Lake” is a bit longer than you had in mind, but it would work really well.
I'm in the process of building a steam engine which should produce 3 hp at 500 rpms which will need a 15 inch by 22 pitch propeller. Now I'm trying to choose a boat to build. I bought study plans for Twinkle but they didn't indicate if the prop would fit. I like the shallow draft feature but need to know which boat will accomodate my engine and prop before I order more plans. I am also restricted to not more than 20 ft. long. Can anyone help me?
Thanks for any tips,
