Small copper pipe, scissors, lighter, tea candle, hot glue gun, pipe cutters, a drill and the bottom of a ice cream container
Cut of the bottom of an ice cream container about 1 to 2 inches from the bottom.
Cut about 2 feet (24inches) of copper pipe with the pipe cutters and bend it .. I use a wooden dowel to get perfect rings.
Drill to holes in the back of the boat for the ends of the pipe to go through.
Insert the ends of the engine through the holes and glue in place
Run water into on pipe until it comes out the other then plug both pipes with two fingers and put the boat in the water.
Light the candle and put it under the coil and wait ... It should take a couple of minutes before it starts moving
