Wally Mounster

There were a number of very nice small steam launches at Hobart but I had never seen or heard of a steam outboard motor.  This particular example was was for sale and was designed and built by Wally Mounster.  Wally was a local Tasmanian who seems to have been a bit of an engineering legend and deserves a mention in the Tinkerers Hall of Fame.  The other steam launches were also very nice but a bit more conventional.
