When you picture a steam engine, you likely imagine a giant cast-iron contraption festooned with knobs, valves, gauges, linkages, and wheels. My interest in pop-pop boats began when I saw Hayao Miyazaki’s stunning children’s movie, Ponyo. First patented in 1891, pop-pop boats use a candle or other flame to heat water in a small boiler connected to one or more pipes.
The moving water’s momentum makes the steam “piston” overshoot its equilibrium, so the steam quickly cools, contracts, and condenses back into water. You can think of a pop-pop boat as a reciprocating, steam-driven water hammer, an engine with pistons made of water, or an external combustion pulsejet (see MAKE Volume 05, page 102, and Jam Jar Jet). A later design (patented in 1916) added a “sound producer” to the boiler, a slightly convex sheet-metal diaphragm that flexes with the expanding and contracting steam. Traditionally these boilers are built with a thin brass diaphragm crimped and soldered into place. Ponyo notwithstanding, this type of engine does not scale up to life-sized boats (nor, for that matter, are there sea wizards or magic talking fish). ConclusionRunning on SpiritsUsing candles for any length of time will coat the bottom of your boiler with soot and leave a greasy black ring in your bathtub or sink. Cameron: There is no reason the basic motor would not work with a twin-hull design, but such a design seems needlessly complicated. These measurements should be taken as rough approximations, as I am measuring a glued-up boiler, with the occasional spot of JB Weld stuck to the outside. I removed the vertical stabilizer because I just couldn't get my arms in comfortably to work on the rudder cable fairings.I used the pop-rivet dimple dies to dimply the fuselage and then clecoed the fairings on.

Intro, Braving the elements?I'm entering this build for the 'brave the elements' contest as this project has enabled me to get out there and experience the elements in my local environment. I have recently finished building a cedar strip canoe, and had barrels full of thin, small pieces of cedar and ash left over. Spring was just starting to arrive in northern Minnesota, and after a long winter, I was getting anxious to get back out into my little wood shop and start another project. Salt water, sunshine, and thousands of miles on a car roof rack can shorten the life of any boat. I have a 13-foot kayak and a crowded garage, and horizontal storage (using a pulley system intended for a bike) was problematic. This Instructable will describe the construction of a heavy duty milk jug raft built out of recycled materials and capable of supporting over 700 lbs. Have you ever stood on the shore and looked out at people boating and wished you could be out there too? This Instructable documents how I built a small sailing boat out of a mussel float, and advice on how to build your own! Today we're going to do a very quick, but functional, repair on a broken hand caned seat in a canoe.
I tried to build the lightest and cheapest (~150€ total material bill) sail-boat I could come up with. I've been wanting to combine my two favorite hobbies - woodworking and sailing for a long time, so I thought I'd build a boat. I set out to make a simple rudder that did not cost the typical $250 but at the same time was a bit more effective than a plank on a stick. Browsing Imgur one day I saw some guys that made a duct tape canoe, and decided to try my hand at the same. After looking around quite a bit, here is a PVC Kayak Cart I made from various different designs I found online to suit my needs. This instructible will get you out on the water to fish without pulling too much cash out of your pocket.
I recently purchased a 14' aluminum Springcraft with EZ loader trailer from a local classified site for $500.00. In this part of the Greenland kayak instructable you will be getting the gunwales ready for building the deck of the kayak. Cut a patch from a shower curtain and use PVC pipe cement from your dad's garage to patch a leak in a PVC air mattress, inflatable boat, dry bag, etc.
I'm starting this topic to both log my experiments and to petition contributions and ideas from others.
I have a large canoe (approx 17 feet long and 4 feet wide at the middle) and more often than not I am the only one physically able to move it (at least until the wee ones get bigger MUH HAHAhahahaha). This instructible will teach you how to build a 17 foot long Greenland kayak that will weigh between 30 and 40 pounds and cost less than $300 in materials. Alright, Finally got a little time to do some work so I made new seats and motor box for the back of the boat.
This is a small cabin boat that sleeps 1 person with lots of space and great to have for kids to play in even in the swimming pool.
Sometimes I like to get on the water by myself and sometimes a canoe will suit me just fine. Living in Cambridge near the historical Charles river and watching people kayak down it's length, I nurtured a growing desire to be able to interact with the natural structure on my own schedule. Epilog Challenge VI: I have entered this into the Epilog challenge please vote on it if you like the build. If you are not looking for super-speed, or want a quiet way to fish, get around the lake, or extend your camping trips, an electric canoe is the way to go! We haven’t really used this dinghy much in Vizag, the water here is just too polluted (and smells of ammonia and sulphur) to want to go sailing in harbour and the beach surf is too rough to risk putting to sea from the beaches. I awoke and went down stairs and walked to the refrigerator to start retrieving what I had prepared earlier for my lunch. This steam-powered toy boat has no moving parts and needs only a flame and the surrounding water to zip around and make its distinctively happy sound.
In it, Ponyo and her friend Sosuke sail a scaled-up version of Sosuke’s pop-pop boat around a flooded city. But the pop-pop boat’s underlying principle is compellingly simple and provides the home tinker with endless room for futzing and improvement. The pipes run down and back into the water behind the boat; when the water in the boiler turns to steam, it pushes jets of water backward out of the pipes, propelling the boat forward. This draws cool water back up through the pipes and into the boiler, where the cycle starts again.
The resulting rattle makes the motor sound more mechanically complex than it actually is, and gives the pop-pop boat its name. Thin-enough brass stock can be hard to find, so I’ve come up with a design that uses castoff packaging instead: an Altoid Smalls tin boiler with an aluminum can diaphragm. Nonetheless, there’s an undeniable pleasure in a home-built toy that scoots around on its own and has no use for batteries — except, perhaps, as ballast. Save it.Carefully flatten the stamped hinges of the bottom half by tapping them with a small hammer. Scribe around the lid onto the sheet, then cut along the lines with tinsnips to create a leaf of aluminum.Gradually trim down the edges of the leaf until you can just tuck it into the lid of the tin without it wrinkling. I won’t be able to design a boat for you, though you may well have good reason to press on with designing one for yourself. Also, as you can see, the Altoids Smalls tin has rounded edges, so it’s not a Euclidean solid, even before you do sheet metal work on it. Note that lower pintle has been ground a little bit to make it fit next to the upper edge of the cheek plate. Note that the nut and bolt for the latch are recessed into the rudder post, so that the tiller can swing up for storage. One thing I wanted to do was build a kayak cart for when there is a distance from the car to the water.
Unfortunately by their nature they tend to be rather utilitarian and bulky looking and are not always very aesthetic to have sitting on your deck or dock.
I live in a town which is surrounded on three sides by water, in the middle of a river estuary. The pieces of wood were so small and thin I had been burning them in our patio fire pit just to keep them from taking up space in the garbage.
A hand crafted ultra-light weight or wooden canoe needs specific preventive care at least twice a year.
These big buttons let you do it even faster because you don't have to wrap anything or poke them through holes. It's always fun, whether you're putting around the cottage dock, paddling through white caps in the ocean or going on river trips.
We got an idea to make a sailboat out of items that we had around the house and bamboo that grew next to us. This project took me about four days working on and off and in a rush, so there were many corners cut and compromises made.


Although this is not the correct way to repair these seats, it definitely works and will get you through until you can buy a new seat or properly hand cane the broken one.

When a regatta starts the box sounds the horns at predetermined intervals: 5 minutes before the start, 4 minutes before the start, 1 minute before the start and at the instant of the start.
It's a simple design where the boat sits inside of the loop and stays on by being pushed forward. The camp and canoeists were running into trouble keeping themselves dry while launching and retrieving the boats! You can save a lot of money and build a comparable frame with as many options as you desire! You will be shaping them and you will also be marking them for later installation of the deck beams. The hardest decision was to design my own or build from a set of plans that were already available. Problem is, I had one canoe of our own, and a truck, but no canoe rack (and didn't want to drive all the way to the river with a 15 foot canoe hanging out the back).
We will show step by step the entire process using materials and techniques proven over many successful rebuilds. Other times the weather is not suitable for a canoe, too windy, too wavy or I just want to cruise the waterways a little more efficiently. I would use the laser to help me with some really cool projects like laser cut wood objects, led illuminated signs, engraved tile and much much more. Because the water sucking back into the tube is incoherent, coming in from all directions, rather than in a directed jet, this intake cycle doesn’t pull the boat backward.
Since aluminum can’t easily be soldered, I’ve substituted J-B Weld epoxy, which is up to the task: its maximum operating temperature of 500°F exceeds the melting point of most soft solders, and its tensile strength is comparable. You can make a simple one by drilling a hole in the metal lid of a very small glass or metal container, threading through a lantern wick, then filling the container with denatured alcohol.I’ve also made spirit lamps out of copper pipe caps and copper tubing.
My advice is that you stick with a simple design for your first few boats, then get creative.
If you are freestyling your own boiler, I would recommend you check around online for some of the available plans out there.
It was really beat up on the outside but the inside showed it had some good bones, ribs to be more specific.
I have to look at the water every time I cross a bridge or pass a lake, and I envy the people I see on the water. Cut a 1?" pipe cap short enough to fit under the boiler with room for the flame, then sweat-solder it onto a sheet metal bottom. If you’re into multiple-hull boats, you might consider a trimaran with the motor in the middle and two smaller hulls outboard.
Quickly, before oxides can re-form, mix the J-B Weld together with a stick and apply it to the inside of the lid.
That way, the boat won’t run in circles, and there will be someplace dry to put your heat source. This tension for this latch can be adjusted to permit the rudder blade to 'pop-up' under the right circumstances.
As I started to pack my lunch box something caught my eye outside on the deck through the patio doors.
As tidily as you can, fold the tabs along the remaining line so that they all point inward toward the center of the tin. Lay the aluminum sheet inside the lid.Smear the J-B Weld over the flat flanges you folded into the tin bottom, paying special attention to the gaps in the corners. I walked over and looked out into the dark and immediately was blinded by an immensely bright light with rays and spikes resembling fire. Apply J-B Weld all the way around the gap between the lid and bottom, and smear some into the hinge holes in the side of the lid.If the aluminum leaf looks sunken or gapped around the edges, blow into the copper tubes to push it up — if you have to do this, you’ll push out some of the wet J-B Weld, so look for fresh air gaps. I hung on with every last ounce of breath that I had-- for I had known from the start that this was pure evil. Sand the tips of the curved ends.Apply flux to the sanded area around the holes in the tin bottom and to the sanded tube ends.
Poke the fluxed end of each tube into the tin bottom, just far enough to rest easily in its hole, then solder the tubes in place.Try to keep the tubes parallel.
It’s easy to “sweat” these into position with a propane torch, but if you aren’t confident in your torch skills, you can epoxy the tubes in later rather than soldering (before you cement the lid down!). You can also fit a rudder to the stern.Measure the outside distance between the 2 tubes where they bend, subtract 1", and drill 2 holes to this measurement in the bottom of the boat, equidistant from the center. Your punch will help get these holes started.Depending on the shape of your boat, fitting the motor in may take a little re-bending of the tubes. Slowly but it was leaving the house and vanishing into the night like a balloon drifting into the atmosphere and then disappearing. You don’t need to fill the boiler completely: just make sure you can hear water sloshing around inside. Hold a finger over the ends of the tubes and lower the boat into the water without letting any water pour out.Light candles or a spirit (alcohol) lamp, and place them under the boiler. I staggered back completely exhausted knowing that a battle just had been fought for my soul.
In about a minute, you’ll hear the water boiling into steam.First, a few bubbles will come out, then the boat will start puttering along in the water, and as the reaction becomes more vigorous, the diaphragm will start its obnoxious song.
I believe the battle was real and that I really experienced it but maybe in a different dimension or realm. I had defeated the devil with the name of Jesus.===================================================================Sometime in our life we all will have to battle demons that try to control us.
Whether it is a fight for our soul or some other evil in our life, it will be a fight that you need to win.
In the book The boy who came back from heaven, Alex Malarkey says that Heaven is guarded by large angels. In the book of Daniel a messenger from God tells Daniel in Chapter 10:12-14 --"Daniel, do not be afraid.
Then Michael, one of the most important angels, came to help me, because I had been left there with the king of Persia. Battles are surely being fought every minute of every day in the supernatural and spiritual world.
Call on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ today for it is written that the devil will lose in the end. If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off? 13 And if he finds it, truly I tell you, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off.
14 In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should perish. Si un hombre tiene cien ovejas y una de ellas se ha descarriado, no deja las noventa y nueve en los montes, y va en busca de la descarriada?13Y si sucede que la halla, en verdad os digo que se regocija ms por sta que por las noventa y nueve que no se han descarriado.14As, no es la voluntad de vuestro Padre que est en los cielos que se pierda uno de estos pequeitos.Never believed in God? Jesus still loves you.Colossians 1:13 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)13 He has rescued us from the domain of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of the Son He loves, Porque El nos libr del dominio de las tinieblas y nos traslad al reino de su Hijo amado,Broken hearted, beaten, and broken? 29 All of you, take up My yoke and learn from Me, because I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for yourselves. 28Venid a m, todos los que estis cansados y cargados, y yo os har descansar.29Tomad mi yugo sobre vosotros y aprended de m, que soy manso y humilde de corazn, y HALLAREIS DESCANSO PARA VUESTRAS ALMAS.Failed?

So I wrote the following that is below:  ========================================================================================================================== Season Finale--- This may be my last Pastor Pop-Pop Sermon. So I wrote the following that is below: A ==========================================================================================================================A Season Finale--- This may be my last Pastor Pop-Pop Sermon. I may leave the web site up and running for a year in case it picks up but there probably will not be new words of wisdom in a message. I feel that in body, mind, and soul that I am under attack from the evil one and it is totally exhausting me spiritually and physically.
At one time there was a period that I was getting over 200 hits per month but now it is down to just a few. One child only comes here when coached and the other I have not seen or heard from in months. Here are some of my prouder moments: Hundreds have visited my Altar Call tab (souls have been saved), I taught a Spanish gentleman who had never prayed before to pray, several people said that I would make a good Pastor, one young man who did not go to Church told me that if I started one he would come to it, at one time I was rated #1 by several internet web service search engines, and through Jesus I helped cure someone of an affliction.
You can still follow me on Twitter if you choose and I may come back to this site occasionally to add a Bible verse or two.


Consider this a season finale in which you dont know if the show will be cancelled or back next season. The one true God.  =================================================================== Funny --- Seconds after I wrote this, my wife came downstairs and informed me that we had to leave for Church.
He stated that he did not want the Lord to come back yet even though all the people he knew could not wait for Jesus to come back. Pastor said that when people tell him that they want Christ to come back that he says, No, not yet, there is at least one more soul to save! I pondered and prayed on that for a minute or two and decided not to cancel my web site and mission.
Since posting the latest message my hits again went well over 200 and I was again rated by one search engine as #1 and another at #2. After publishing the latest message I had two Spanish people seek the Lord more and now a friend has asked to go to Church with me.
I will take out the stubborn hearts of stone from your bodies, and I will give you obedient hearts of flesh. What is my point? I will take out the stubborn hearts of stone from your bodies, and I will give you obedient hearts of flesh.A What is my point?
And most importantly, do not give up trying to save souls in your family, work place, community, or the world.
Encourage them with great patience and careful teaching, Matthew 16:26 --- It is worthless to have the whole world if they lose their souls.

You see, we did not have video games then unless you count Pong and the snow made the four channels we did get on TV full of static. As we rounded a portion of the mountain the ledge that I was walking on gave way and I fell about 20 feet down a cliff.
The snow below cushioned my fall but where I landed - there was about a 60 degree slope covered with snow and ice. Below me was a very large straight down drop that would have been disastrous for me if I went over it. I dug in my heals and my hands but could not stop or slow down so I started to steer myself toward a small tree. Knowing that I would not be able to hang on to it with my hands, I decided to let it hit me in the body.
Stopping within 3 feet of going over the edge I hurt all over with the breath knocked out of me. I could have stayed there and yelled for help or rested awhile but knowing that my friend was up there alone and I had to get out of this situation, I just started to slowly and safely climb back up. A You may make a climb to the top of the ladder at work and end up falling due to a lay-off or closure. A You may get married and start a family and it end up in divorce or maybe a spouse will die. Your exhausted, depressed, tired and disgusted and feel just like giving up or taking a rest on life for a time. Dont allow yourself to be buried in that pit you have fallen in and (one step at a time) climb out of that valley and charge up that hill.
It may take time, maybe years, but if you stay put and do not move forward (even a little at first) you will be like that bear caught in a trap in the middle of the dark woods.
A And sometimes a person starts to climb out of their mess and then starts to back-slide so doubt sets in. Peter, one of Christs disciples trusted the Lord and actually walked on water but when the storm kept up - his faith started to slip. The Lord will not give you something that He knows is disastrous for you even if you think it might be good. 10 Or if your children ask for a fish, would you give them a snake?   Do not give up; keep asking, praying, trying, and moving forward. She had her hand on the throttle of an F-16 and she had her orders: Bring down United Airlines Flight 93. Penney, one of two combat pilots in the air that morning, was told to stop the plane before it reached the nations capitol. The problem was that her and her wing man had to scramble so fast that there was no time to load ammunition or missiles.
This was the end of her life and she knew it but this would be the ultimate sacrifice for her country and would save Washington from the airliners destruction. Fortunately for her (not the passengers) the airline crashed in a field inPennsylvania before the F-16s arrived at the scene. The priest will perform the acts to remove that person's sin so he will belong to the Lord. 7 " 'But if the person cannot afford a lamb, he must bring two doves or two young pigeons to the Lord as the penalty for his sin.
One bird must be for a sin offering, and the other must be for a whole burnt offering.8 He must bring them to the priest, who will first offer the one for the sin offering. In this way the priest will remove the person's sin so he will belong to the Lord, and the Lord will forgive him.However, God decided that this practice was going to end and through His love he was going to offer His own blood sacrifice for all of our sins. He asked His son to give His life as a perfect blood sacrifice and an offering for all that we have done badly. He gave the ultimate sacrifice for us on that cross that day even though we did not deserve it.
As Heather Lucky Penny was willing to do for her country, Jesus was willing to do the same for His Father and all of His followers. All those who accept Jesus as Lord and Savior shall now have the forgiveness of their sins through His blood.
That new person is made to be like Godmade to be truly good and holy.=============================================Check out the new song by Tricia Brock --"Always", on my Song tab.
We as humans can live to be 100 years old if we are not struck with cancer, a major disease or hit by a car.
This latter group is the one that I will address.Lets look at the validity of the Bible for a minute. Some people will argue that you can't believe the Bible because it was written by followers who believed in God or Jesus.
If you were to use this argument regarding autobiographies, biographies, and history books, you would have to remove all these books off the library selves. Others would argue that the Bible can't be trusted because we do not know if the original manuscripts are accurate. To determine the accuracy of the manuscripts, we can compare the Bible manuscripts to manuscripts of other literature. If we are going to be fair, we should not require more of the Bible than we do other literature, but the Bible will hold up to even more scrutiny. Notice that the time frame for the New Testament of the Bible is much much smaller and there are many more copies. Over and over again, archaeological digs are finding artifacts that prove the various stories that are in the Bible. There were over 40 authors so there is no way they could have conspired with each other.So, if we are to consider the Bible as factual then lets look at what it says about getting to Heaven where the Father resides. This is true for all who believe in Christ, because all people are the same:As you see, according to the Bible, there is only one God and the only way to Him is through faith in Jesus and accepting Him as your Lord and Savior.
There are many more passages to quote but I encourage you to get a Bible in an easy to read translation and read it yourself. The other religions, besides Christianity, in the world follow a person, thing, idol, the earth, nature, or a prophet.
The Jewish and Muslim people believe in the same Father (the Muslims follow a prophet though) but Jesus declared himself part of God and proved it through numerous miracles.
We Christians believe in a Trinity the Father, the Son (Jesus), and the Holy Spirit, as proved through the Bible. Nothing you do here on Earth can save you only the belief of this God and acceptance of His son Jesus. He was mad at the idea that his wife became a Christian and went on a journey to prove that Jesus was a work of fiction. The book contains, in an easy to read format, all the evidence that he found and the interviews with experts.
