Steamy Kevin 2

Last year we posted about Kevin Doveton. ‘Steamy Kevin’, as we call him, engineers and build working miniature steam engines. For that his workshop is full with precision tools; some developed and build from scratch by himself.

Recently he build a prototype of a working miniature steam outboard engine. The idea is that the final concept is build into a small boat.

Kevin, living in Napier, sells his engines to collectors on a global scale.

Smoke

Winter in South Africa. It’s cold and in the countryside many on the farms make a fire to keep warm while working on the land. Seemingly unaware of the effect: smoke stretching for about 15 kilometers between mountains and river/lagoon before disappearing above the ocean.
