Smile Small Water Tube Boiler

Hi

I'm looking for a small water tube boiler for my steam launch,
I've looked at Beckmans for their "Roberts Boiler" but it is to rich for my blood (over $7000 not including taxes, shipping, customs fees etc). I like the Roberts design and although I could probably build one with all of the other projects I have on the go it would not get finished until the next century. I have a brand new code built 40 sq' vertical fire tube boiler that I had planned to use but it is just to big for this boat and thus the need to down size. If anybody happens to have or is willing to sell or knows of somebody that would be willing to work something out for a small water tube boiler of around 25 sq' heating surface please let me know and we can see if something can't be worked out.

Cheers Al

Al,
You might try a bare Bryan CLM-90.
It is 55 1/2 " long x 41 1/2 " wide
160 PSIG design water tube.
You might be able to get it as only
the pressure vessels and tubing
on the steel stand with no burner.
Build your own casing and grates.
Install your own antique brass jewelry.
