As pointed out below, the name is a direct reference to the ship from 'The World of the Worlds'. Might need a tweak as y'all have suggested to make it fit with the Canadian naming scheme.

"The Invaders must have seen them
As across the coast they filed
Standing firm between them
There lay Thunder Child".

The easiest way is to fast travel to The Devil's Throat and follow the ridge east. Subtly hidden by the landscape will be two caves without the possibiliy to enter them. Near these cave entrances will be a triggerzone that knocks you out after which the dungeon will start. The only prerequisition for this trigger to occur is that the player is not in combat (be it by having killed all surrounding ghouls or being unnoticed by the ghouls). Hope this helps.

I am aware a ship with a British name and a Canadian flag floating down an American river is an odd picture for a post-apocalyptic world. However, the backstory of this boat (which can be read on a terminal inside) explains it. The previous owner of the vessel was originally from Ontario, traveled south to the US, found the boat and named it "HMS Thunderchild".

The reason for the Canadian identity was to imply the journey the ship had been through. It would have been less impressive if it came from a closer state like Arizona or Colorado. I picked a Canadian flag as the lore of Canada is very limited, with only the annexation being an interesting piece.

As to the ship's name, it has two reasons. Firstly it's a reference to War of the Worlds, a well written book about an alien invasion feauturing a ship with the same name. The second reason was to emphasize the survivor's misinterpretation due to lack of knowledge, as he thought HMS stands for Heavy Maintenance Ship.

Hope this explains it well enough, and thanks for taking the time to look a my mod

Finally... 
I've waited so long for a simple working boat. It's a great addition to my Hardcore Survival playthrough and the  Mojave Train Travel Redux mod. (https://www.nexusmod...tab=description)
 
The free repairs is too much; basicly a cheat, not relly a fan of it.

I'd absolutely love a ttw version, docking by Rivet City or somewhere along the river, then in spots around Point Lookout, sounds great. Also I'd like some more containers in the ship.

For more containers, you can just use portable camp stuff : https://www.nexusmods.com/newvegas/mods/46195

It's a reference to "War of The Worlds". You're overthinking it.

I love this mod with all added locations as well. Sadly my laptop is a potato and cannot run some of those locations and the interior on stable 60fps. One thing that slightly bothers me is that ceilings are too high i think.
