Default Outboard Steam engine motor

If you could plumb steam to the engine you might be able to do this, but
there's likely no way to put reasomable power in an outboard engine with
the boiler requirements.


There have been a number of successful designs that have accomplished this goal. You won't get 150hp out of it, but certainly enough power to move a small skiff at a decent speed- 8hp or so. Traditional boiler designs are too heavy, but the Serpollet monotube works quite well. Check out Wally Mounster and Terry William's designs.

Nuclear powered naval vessels use steam turbine technology (for steam to mechanical). Is that what the OP meant back in 1996 or so? Even then, maybe that's too big of a system.

You are exactly right, Chas. Thanks for mentioning my steam outboard. I ran it for a number of years beginning in 1989, and accumulated over 1500 hours on it. It now sits on my patio in need of a little TLC

Somewhere around here, I've the plans for a Steam Powered Model
Aeroplane from ~1908.
Not sure it would scale up, though.

The Maxim steam airplane had two 180 hp steam engines and a hundred
foot wingspan..... in 1893.

Lindbergh wasn't even close to the first to fly cross the Atlantic,
either.
