That is a beautiful boiler Bernhard! I had a Hemmens kingdon in a Victoria launch that looked like that and it was a nice boiler as well. Also like how the paint changes the character of the Graham engine. If that boiler can support the Tvr1A is is a good boiler!

Bernhard, That is the Hemmens boiler I had in the Victoria I sold. If it were me I would go with the newer Kingdon. Lower profile. Love the boat!!! I have a Titanic life boat that is on que for a steam plant after I finish the Borkum.
