Dear Thomas and other steam aficionados (nuts) who may read this, I believe Tri-Coastal Marine has been cut loose from this project (although no one has informed me one way or the other). We will update our Cangarda webpage when we get a chance. We've got many inquiries/complaints about progress with the steam plant, and I don't have any good answers. Basically, it is complicated, principally due to all the automatic combustion controls. I'll take some pictures of the engine room and post them so you can get a feel for it.
