Recycled tin is used to construct this pop-pop or putt-putt boat. The original markings are retained, so no two are the same!
These boats are named for the popping or putting sound of their small steam engines. For information on how the steam engine works see our flash boiler (steam engine) cycle tutorial.
An html version of our
steam engine cycle tutorial is found here.
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: about 5 1/2" long (14 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."
