I belive I came across that site but I must have missed that. I experimented with a large rotor(4.5") and I think it might work. I hit it with about 10psi and got alot of RPM out of it. Now if I remember correctly the Victory had a 4:1 reduction(correct me if I am wrong) so I used that to turn the 5" prop. seems like it will work. On a real ship is the water to the boilers pumped in or is there just a pick up in the bottom of the hull where the water comes in from the displacement of the ship in the water? Thanks...
