Marine Steam Engine Project
The Finished Engine
26 February 2004
This website was kept up to date till about
2004 and then disappeared for a few years.
The information is still relevant to those
interested in building the EB triple and I hope the site continues to
inspire people to build this magnificent engine
Some of the movie links continue to defeat my
steam understanding but hopefully they will appear again soon
There are some videos of the engine and the
"Witch of Endor" on Youtube

This site is designed to:
Display the progress made
designing and manufacturing a 2 3/4" + 4 3/8" + 6 1/2" x 4" triple
expansion marine steam engine based on castings produced by the Elliot Bay
Steam Launch Co. of Portland US
Assist the builders of
steam engines in general by describing and showing methods of manufacture
of various components.
attractions and benefits of steam propulsion in launches and yachts so
that they might be enjoyed by a larger audience.
Provide a source of general
information about the attributes of marine steam
Provide links between steam
engine builders so that they may benefit from the expertise of others.
Provide links so that
people with expertise in the areas of marine steam in general and steam
engine design and manufacture in particular can share their knowledge so
that it might be passed on to further generations.
Share with other engine
builders my own experience and methods in the design, manufacture and
operation of a traditional marine triple expansion steam engine.
Serve as a repository of
revisions, modifications & improvements made by all builders
