Well last weekend was a momentous occasion, the first time I have steamed my steam launch. I was hoping to have her in steam at the last STL, but leaking tubes put paid to that! So after a retube the boiler is back in the boat, and plumbed in, so I had to light a fire in it...

A few minor leaks to attend to, plus the safety valve needs adjusting, but she runs nicely!
