Steamship


| January/February 1971


By Route 3, Newport, Penna. 17074

On Saturday, March 14, I attended the Central Florida 2nd Annual Gas & Steam Engine Show which was held at the Oderkirk Museum, Haines City, Florida.

While there I saw a model steam ship built and displayed by Daniel G. Post, 4500 Ravenswood Rd., Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. 33312. It is modeled after a Navy Cargo Supply Launch of about 1885. This nicely built model is 11 feet long by 2 feet wide. It is powered by a boiler that has 500 square inches of heating surface and is fired with charcoal for fuel with a natural draft. The boiler carries 120 lbs. of steam. A pipe in the bottom of the ship condenses the exhaust steam into water for reuse in the boiler. A vertical Stuart No. 4 engine provides .4 hp. to move the ship ahead at 3 Knotts with its load of two people.
