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.

Most of the American mfrs. went out of business in the late 70's and 80's when a flood of much cheaper cast stoves from Korea, China etc. came into the country as a result of demand from the gas crisis back then. You might still find a similar model based on their castings out there.
Any of these look similar?

Wow! Good question! If you’re interested in a hard-fuel stove, check out Fifth Avenue Tin Shop Co. If you can get a line on them, (They put out the famous “Tiny-Tot”) look at the “Buddy”. I heated my boat comfortably, year round for years in Gloucester with one and was able to replace it with a new one with some research. I think I bought to new one with a S/S back for under $300.
