Default Help Identify Small Marine Steam Engine

Got this awhile ago and haven't been able to find anything about it. It turns over (runs with compressed air), it has a porcupine boiler. Can't find any names on it, just a Bear logo on the side plate on the engine itself, and "1902". I was told it was off a small fishing boat. Any info much appreciated.

That is exactly the second one I've seen in forty years. Can't tell you anything about it but if you ever sell it I would be VERY interested in it.

I want to get a bit off topic. Liki, is Sunnyvale up north on Lake Shasta. If so, did you ever know a family there, father worked at a sawmill and son was in boot camp with me in the Navy, name-Dennis Houtalla. If I spelled last name correctly?

Every PC has MS Paint which is easy to use to get images the right way up.

Nice looking little engine.
