Many thanks to George who has donated a rather large but very old boat hull, complete with a steam engine and boiler to  be sold for club funds.


 IO have managed to identify the engine, its a Stuart 'Star' engine built sometime between 1926 and 1939. Very collectable and on its own is worth around 250. After photographing the lot we will be putting it up for sale, probably on e bay.

We have been very lucky getting so many donations in recent years.
model boats are great fun, the faster the better.Floating kettles are interesting

The engine is now on ebay and has attracted a first bid of 200.
The boat hull has been sold to a club member (Its not in a good condition and requires much work.
The boiler(very poor and not fit for purpose) and associated materials have been designated scrap.

We may get lucky and see more bids as the auction draws to a close.
