Thanks! The "bagged boiler" question came about from old S & D's that I have been relishing, specifically the "Log of the Steamer Boaz in 1906". Reading the log it seemed that a few times a year a "bag" was discovered and it was quickly repaired, as in a few days. Either Tom's explaination of the big hammer theory or my envisioned theory of new metal bolted into place after the bag was removed seems logical considering how short the repair time was. I would think that bolting a new section on would weaken the surrounding metal a bit, though...
