The boat is may be powered by olive oil or small votive-style candles. An accessory pack containing a bulb water primer, fuel holder, and a fuel candle is included. Additional candles may be purchased.
Be aware that powering the flash boiler leaves soot on the boat, particularly on the dolphin tail. This is a natural result of burning fuel.
This type of boat is known as a pop-pop or putt-putt boat. It is named for the popping or putting sound of its small steam engine.
