Force 10 hydronic system?

I have a fuel fired hydronic heating system aboard our boat. I can't find a single number, sticker, or placard ect to tell me what exactly what I have. The nearest clue I have found is on a separate fault panel that simply says Force10. After extensive internet searches I cannot come up with anything that resembles the unit I have. The problem is the igniter has burned out. see attachment. The unit is 12v the ceramic piece is the size of a cig butt. It had a metal piece extruding from the end about 1/2 inch which has melted or broken off. I am pretty sure its a glow plug type rather than a sparker. Has anyone seen a igniter similar to this where would one go took find something close to it. Thanks in advance Click image for larger version

Just a thought, go to the Seattle Boat Show now in progress. On the upper level east wing of Century Link arena are about half a dozen suppliers of hydronic heaters and related parts. Betcha an answer is there and even some safety tips for insuring your boiler is in good working order.

Looks like a pilot thermocouple, same as used on a gas fireplace insert. As the pilot heats up the probe current flows thru
