Thank you guys for your interest, much appreciated. The main thrust of my post was to inquire if anyone may have thoughts on whether the original launch back in the late 1800's would have been coal or timber fired? and also where she may have been built (I am guessing the South Coast and maybe Southampton or Plymouth).

Robert.....a generalist question, however I asked Google...."were Navy Picket Boats Coal Fired?"

The answer is supported simply by the fact that coal fuel would have been available onboard any Principal warship........

Thanks for that Derek, I can reasonably assume he boiler was coal fired.
