Catamaran
Steampunk boat used for something else than just classical destruction ;]
About this creation
A bit unusual boat, combining modern catamaran shape with steam powered engines. Originally a MOC starting in BTT, home lugpol's competition. My errand was to transport two wounded people, from lighthouse to the coast.

   I am particularly proud of that little detail. This is actually working anchor ;)

   The tent was added to create an unwindy place somewhere on the boat; I think it turned out to be quite nice ;]

   There are lots of controls, including levers, gauges and valves. Plus, a real working tiller which actually rotates the propellers.

   Yes, I know, wheels are bad here. But there was no way to hide them. What is their function, you ask? Simple. They are propelling the propellers while moving. The model works like a car, with working steering.

   This is how power from wheels is transmitted to the propellers. Notice that you can make the model turning, and they will still work.

   And now, realising my errand. I didn't build the lighthouse of course, as my task was to build a transport only :)

   This is where the reality is a bit "hacked". You coudn't just pull the boat to the molo... but hey, if you had so thick arms and legs in real... then maybe ;]

I think this boat doesn't recieve nearly enough support. It is clever, quality building. New minifigs would be nice, though.
