    Well yah .... just bare with me ... :D pot pot boats !! Hit a snag in my boat building so im diverting my energy into small toy boats ...

    I was thinking, if i redesign it so the intake is at the front (with a check valve for inflow) and output from the rear (same but check valve for outflow), build it out of plywood and epoxy (fit a receiver and servos for remote control navigation.) how much power can i get from the small boiler ?
    Just need to figure out the weight and the engine size for my ultimate RC boat ....

    Didn't know about pop pop boats when I was a kid; the internet hadn't been invented yet.:(

    So I had to settle for baking powder submarines; my mother sent off a quarter and a cereal boxtop for one.

    Let's see; they started selling them in 1954. Since I was born in 1949 and got my first one when I was 5 years old, it looks like I had one of the originals....

    add: Angel, I don't think a pop pop boat has one inlet and one outlet. If I understand them correctly, each side acts as an inlet and as an outlet. The alternating action is why they pop pop....
