Chimney Boat $8.00


Click to enlarge.

These chimney boats are great running boats. Try one in a pool or pond and see if you don't agree.

They are painted either green or brown as shown in the photograph on the left. You may choose a color preference in the options below.

This type of boat is known as a pop-pop or putt-putt boat. It is named for the popping or putting sound of its small steam engine. Basic information on how the flash boiler works is found in our steam engine (flash boiler) tutorial.

These boats run on either candles or olive oil.

A package of accessories included with each boat contains a bulb water primer, fuel holder, and a fuel candle. Additional candles may be purchased.

Dimensions: 6" x 2 5/8" x 1 5/8" (15.2 cm x 6.7 cm x 4.1 cm).

Not a young child's toy! Some edges may be sharp and, of course, an open flame is required to run the steam engine. These boats should be suited for most 13 years old and up, younger with a guardian "shipmate."

Gift orders may input a salutation in the comments section at the end of the ordering process.
