Rocket Stove for my water heater

I have been heating our hot water in a "tanganyika boiler" for 20 years. Works great, keeps heat in but uses a bit of firewood. I want to cut down on the firewood so been planning on changing to rocket stove / wood gas. Wasn't sure about how a big size would work so we did a mock up. This is Erik Lokensgaard who is visiting and Dina my neighbors kid. Erik followed my directions and came up with this first attempt. You can see the flames under the pot.

More to come.....
