Amazing Toy - Steam Boat !!! (Putt-Putt Boat , Pop Pop Boat) invented in the late 1800s.
(Putt-Putt,Pop-Pop it's the sound it makes while under power ,The name comes from the noise the boats make.)
World's Smallest Steam Engine!
The toy Putt Putt boats are powered by a steam boiler. (a steam engine powered by a candle)
Two tubes from the boiler extend out the back of the boat into the water.
The dilation is used to expel the water through a tube and the condensation is used to aspire water in the same tube.
The result of the operation of a cycle is that the boat advances.
This causes steam to puff out of the pipes at the back of the boat, propelling the boat forward. The steam boats are fun to play with in a bathtub or pond.
Amazing ,This type of toy boat has been around for almost 100 years. !!!
