There are many ways for building of a hull, such as using frame of square lumbers or using F.R.P. Here, we build the hull using piled up boards of balsa. This can be built easily, and can stop the water leakage easily.
Put on additional parts, such as a rudder and balancers (weights). Put on the engine, and put on a propeller made of thin metal plate. Finally, the boat is completed! Structure of the boat for building (Autodesk DWF format)

After the Stirling engine boat is completed, run the engine, and float it on water. Also let us adjust the size or pitch of the screw propeller, then try to get high-speed running. Our boat could run at about 0.6 m/s lightly. Tips of the development of a high-speed Stirling engine boat are that the development of a low drag hull and high-power engine. Also the engine and the hull are reqired light weight. A running boat on water is very beautiful. Please try to develop a high-speed Stirling engine boat.
Please note that the balsa burns well. The engine must be heated near water.
