    Received an email today, telling me my C-Head toilet shipped. Expected delivery date is next Wednesday. That works for me. I had it sent to my work address, and I'm working Monday night through Wednesday night. I'll try to post a few pic's showing construction details of the unit....

    Paul Luke in Maine makes nice marine jewelry. Perhaps one comes up used.

    I once purchased a gimballed, Propane cooker from Luke.

    In classic Maine speak ,written on a red tag attached to the cooker..

    I looked up Paul Luke on Google. Good business to keep track of, I think.

    Interesting stove, SamSam. How about some pic's after it's finished and all prettied up?

    The stove from duckworks is a cute little thing, and the construction is interesting. But at 6"x6," I'd say it's a bit too small for my needs.

    The owl in the woodpile is a great piece of art. Someone must've had a lot of time on his hands..

    Something like 50 000 boats destroyed in Hurricane Sandy. Somewhere out there is a Mother Lode of good stuff , salvaged from the shipwrecks. Good time to start googling. Marine consignment shops

    Perhaps contact a company like BACON in Annapolis http://www.baconsails.com/ with a list of wanted items and see what they propose. There is also a big one down south in Florida.

    That sounds like good advice, and I thank you for it.

    Does anyone else have links to maritime salvage or consignment sites?

    Yes...sailorman.

    http://www.sailorman.com/

    many others around. In the Carolinas ?

    When new boat builders go bankrupt these shops come in and purchase all the stainless hardware, toilets, tanks, engines and whatnot that were ordered for the new constructions.

    I was recently in one of these shops on the Island of Levkas in Greece. It was huge. Outboard motors stacked up like cordwood.

    There are hundreds of them on the east coast, thousands nation wide, but many aren't well represented on line. The best choice is to literally drive into every little hick town on the coast and find the "working" marinas and boat shops. In the back there'll be a room full of stuff, maybe even a sign suggesting they sell used gear. In the hurricane prone areas, each town has a set of these types of shops. The don't have numbers in the phone book, likely no web site, but a box of donuts on Saturday morning can yield a lot of good advice and prices on gear.

    Very nice boat Troy and PAR. I can't wait to see the building picture. this boat will be a head turner for sure.
    This is what I did in my boat the Loudoun. I built a fire brick shield inside the stove also.
    The fire shield on the side and bottom is built with 5/8" fire retardant sheet rock, then a 20 gage galvanized sheet steel. I bought a Habor Freight brake to built it. Worked fine.
    Not seen in the picture, is the overhead shield, also built of 20 gage galvanized steel sheet
    I built the rail of aluminum bar bolted to the stove.

    Soapstone is a kind of stone used to build wood stove ion conjunction with steel frame, or cast iron frame
    Firebricks are bricks resistant to the high heat you put inside the wood stove to protect the steel or the cast iron.
