I would expect to see a copper pan about 1 foot larger than the stove footprint all around and about 2-3 inches deep filled with sand with the stove sitting on brick platforms at the corners with air clearance between the stove and sand. The sand could be changed as needed and also wetted to cool it, wet or dry it would block high heat from penetrating to the wood deck. A brick platform might also been used as a platform for the stove. Metal transfers heat, can provide a resistant platform, but without air circulation behind it or other heat shield, heat transfers quickly through it to the material it is resting on.

@jud I do agree with you. I add  just to all you wrote, my view for the upper part. As I wrote above my beieve is that the panel (basin) on the top deck (where the ducts sit in) had water in it and it was made from cooper or most possibly it was made with riveted cast iron plates.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
