    Update: Disreguard the first update! After a little more cleaning the valve does NOT say KANE it says CRANE!!!!! Crane valves has been around since 1855. This means the wreck could be much older. I thought it was wierd that it would have a valve made by a japanese company from that time period but who knew? I still haven't found a date on anything but I'll talk to Crane valves hopefully later today.

    I posted another thread, but I thought I would include it here as well. Where on a scotch type boiler would you find the brass data tag? We're gonna try and get back to the wreck in the next two weeks. Were the data tags typically riveted on?

    Hard to say where the tag my be found as every manufacturer was a little different. However, detailed photos of the boiler(s) may help narrow down the type and theereby help narrow the search.
