cool stuff, curious what the heat source is and its efficiency.

Flames in the bilge is no big deal when you remove the combustible gas. And, they don't exactly have to be "open."

I like the idea, Would be interesting to see what kind of btu's are needed to heat the water to do real work.

Do we even have to ask about the 37 sortcruiser in that pic, or are you going to start another thread??

A steam engine makes 100% available torque (whatever the number happens to be) @ 0 rpm...ever see a steam locomotive spin the drive wheels as soon as steam is applied to the cylinders?
In the video there was mention that the speedometer and tachometer would be the same instrument, sounds like it's the same deal with this engine- Cool stuff!
