Depends on the state you're in. I would think Nelson Jones barge would come under the Coast Guard. Texas had/has practically nothing, but the insurance company wanted us to get the boiler inspected, and we got the state to do that. The inspector was very easy to deal with, probably because we had just bought a brand new code boiler. He told us that there were probably 5000 uninspected boilers in Texas!

We avoided the Coast Guard like the plague, but the new owners of the Graceful Ghost have had to deal with the CG, so it is now CG Kosher.

Those old steam tractors are really neat, but after that accident, many have been cooled down forever. I don't know what Colorado has, but it is pretty strict on steam locomotives.

And then there is the test-it-yourself option, which anyone with a boiler should do.
