Re: [pop-pop-steamboats] Re: New wood pop pop boat
- Hi Paul
Thanks for your interest.
I have a copper and a brass heat shield inside at both ends and underneath, but the trapped heat produced was so much with three burners, the copper is now blued nicely!
I am currently working on thin formed copper boilers silver soldered using siler solder paste, trying different shapes. I will put photos on if and when they work

A very nice boat, a shame really that you can't run the boat with the cabin on. A heat shield made of thin brass plate might solve that problem.
