S.L. Noah



18 feet long, wooden copper nailed. Dynol cloth was used on out side for sealing cracks. Deck is teak veneer with black filler between the strips. The hull was given to me to restore by a fellow boater who rescued it from becoming fire wood.


OB Bolton No15 Piston Valve twin 2 + 2 x 2.5"

The engine was part built before the hull came along. The castings were kept to a minimum, the rest I fabricated.


Boiler: Yarrow type 3 drums all copper. Top drum 8 inches, 2 bottom drums are 3 inches. Pressure 100 psi.

Water pumps: Hand pump to boiler, Mechanical pump off crank 3:1 reduction from the hot well. Injector.

Propeller Prop: Bronze 11 1/2 inch x 18 inch pitch (all that can fit in) cast and finished off by myself.


Noah has had her steam plant removed and is now powered by a Vinco
