Boat w Rubber Band Propeller by indusMaker Nov 18, 2012

Description

I saw a similar wooden boat in London Maritime Museum souvenir shop. The design looked simple and doable to me so I tried and here it is. Kids are very happy with it. The hole in the front can be used to plug a flag, though i yet to make one.

Uploaded modified version of STL with right pegs size, the holes in the boat are 5mm wide while the pegs are of 4.8mm and 10mm high with 2x10 mm base.

You are right I goofed up some how, I printed it long time back I guess first I printed those large pegs and later redesigned the smaller one but forgot to include it in the main stl. Now I couldn't find it them.

currently the pegs are 7mm while the holes in the boat are 5mm. It's very easy to make those pegs in sketchup or tinkercad. Any how I should design new pegs and post it here.

Thanks for bringing this to my notice.
Those pegs are way too big for those holes.

Instructions

Refer the picture of my printed boat for assembly, i guess it's quite easy to assemble. You need a rubber band to power the boat.
