For Sale:  Scotch Marine Boiler

 Reduced to $2,000


click images


This Scotch Marine Boiler came out of the British Navy Pinnace Oceanid owned by Robert Hale Ellis, Jr.


The Oceanid was brought to Seattle from England in May 1960. After many years of service, the diagonal planked mahogany hull had expired and was later scrapped out in 2014. The British Oceanid was one of the few ships that were not coal burners it has always burned oil. It appears to be in a repairable condition but this can be determined by the potential buyers inspection. It has been recently sandblasted and re primed.This is definitely a one of a kind piece.


All the bronze flanged fittings are available upon request and at extra cost


There is a detailed article in the magazine, Steamboat and Steam launches (Jan/Feb 1962), which tells about the vessel and the machinery.
