WANTED: New or Used Wood Fired Boiler
I have built a 20ft modified Elliotbay launch and am seeking an appropriate new or used boiler for a 5HP single semple engine.
Will consider any and all leads but prefer the U.S. east coast area.
To remark that I do not know what I am talking about in the steamboat world is putting it kindly. Thanks
Saranac Lake, NY
WANTED: My father and I are looking for a lubricator similar to what is shown in the pictures above for the Doty compound that's going in my father's project. We would like to find one with somewhere around 10 outlets. I'm sure some could be doubled with a "T" or plugged if necessary. Would you happen to be in possession and willing to part with something of this nature or perhaps know someone who might?
