New Wood stove and Deck Iron

I am designing a new wood stove and Deck Iron for boats. It will only be used for boats as it will not be EPA rated for residential use. My goal is the make a less expensive stove and deck iron than what is currently available. The deck iron will not be a water trough style. This will be usable in all conditions. It will be a single cast unit for 4" pipe. In the drawing phase now, soon to be making patterns and core patterns and then casting and testing. Not sure whether to patent it or not. Time will tell.

More Progress

I have been working like a mad man to try to get the engine room ready for the engine. Alot of wire and hoses have to be delt with first. Maybe soon. Now the cold weather is slowing me down.

Engine Room Continues

Here is a little more of the engine room. It was never originally insulated or had sound deadening material in it. I used the Weld Mount System to glue studs to the bulkheads to hold it in place as it is pretty heavy. I also used them to hold mounting boards to the wall.

New Tank Fittings


New fittings to replace the old ones.

Warning



Yes your water tank is waiting to fail. If you own a Tiburon 36 or early model Cabo Rico 38, I would check your water fittings on the tank.
