neptune cast-iron woodstove

Where can I find info on the old cast-iron wood/coal stove made in Everett, WA. many years ago.. I think they were made for the fishing industry to keep the commercial fisherman warm and for cooking. They are no longer in business. I think they made two models, the Neptune A-1 and I don't recall the other.

See (click on) Traditional Cast Iron Marine Stoves by Navigator Stove Works,Inc.

"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."

Re: neptune cast-iron woodstove

Over 40 years of living aboard with a wood stove for heat, mostly in BC, has taught me that there are two critical things in a wood stove.
1. It must be airtight ,and thus the burn rate must be controlable.
2. The firebox must be big enough to allow an all night burn, with good dry wood.
That Neptune is neither . I had a stove like that on my first boat , made by Washington Stove works. What a useless piece of crap! Had to feed it constantly, and the moment I stopped, it went out.
I tried to talk a friend out of wasting his time on his ,but he persevered, for a couple of weeks ,then threw it overboard and built a proper stove. The only way you can get a proper wood stove for a boat is to build it yourself, or have someone who knows metal work, build one for you. Shops are afraid of the regulations, so it takes a back yard builder to build you one. My book has the instructions and dimensions for the one I have been using, for decades of full time, year round living aboard, mostly in BC.
