Default B & W Fulton engine video

A youtube video of the prototype model of the Boulton and Watt engine used by Robert Fulton on his boat. This project is being worked on by volunteers in 4 states. All time and materials are being donated to provide the Clermont Historic Site with a "hands on" demo of the CLERMONT'S steam engine.

YouTube - Fulton Engine Model

I overhead a little boy ask his dad, "How does the steamboat work". With that question the project was born.

Note: you may have to cut and paste the address into you browser.

More info if anyone has an interest.
