The boiler was manufactured in 1969 and was installed during th refit soon after. This is coupled to a 1900 two cylinder compound engine. The machinery is fully operational,and the boiler has a recent safety certificate (to 300psi against a normal operating pressure of 140 psi)
The engine was built in Cowes circa 1900. The vertical circular boiler is unusual in that the fire tubes extend radially around a central fire box to an outer smoke box, The outside cladding of the boiler is also the surface of the smoke box. In the top of the firebox is a bell shaped damper which if open exhausts the heat directly up the chimney or if closed through the fire tubes.
