Here is a good video on tweaking the speed of these boats
This link that explains the general annealing process without getting too technical and here is a YouTube video on the subject by George Goehl

Some history on Pop Pop boats you look at this Wikipedia link on the subject they have been around since at least 1891 when a patent was filed by a Frenchman named Thomas Piot.

Water in the boiler is turned to steam. The steam has a greater volume than the water so it pushes out of the boiler and down the tube. In the tube it cools, condenses and contracts so it is drawn back into the boiler and the process repeats. The action of the steam pushing into the tube pushes the existing water in the tube out the back and that drives the boat forwards. When the steam cools it condenses and contracts so the external pressure pushes the water back up the tube.
If your next question is "why doesn't the boat oscillate backwards and forwards due to this push-pull effect?" try blowing a candle out and then try sucking a candle out and you will see the blow is fairly directional but the suck is not.

Boat sinks when it is launched from a flatbed tow-truck. Hilarity ensues.
