And I'll add a bit 'cause I can't stop. Phillip, I suspect you're interested in the original steam aspects of the DQ...

True story, about two summers ago the boat lost her house water system, this system supplies all the drinking water, basically all water except toilet flushing water. Anyways, the fancy schmancy Grundfos house water pump decided to go south (a great, high quality pump that Grundfos, spec 'em all the time, but even great stuff breaks over time). Anyways a little head scratching occured until engineering remembered the original steam powered water pump was available for reconnection to any of the boat's water systems...some wrenching later, and away we go...
