  1. There are previous threads on this if you enter the search words on top right hand side of the page, lots of useful stuff there.
  2. I have ordered a new glass, a bit under £30 off e bay. Thanks for replies. I think stove flue, has rusted from condensation inside boat, all fertanned now, so hopefully sorted once I buy some stove paint.
  3. The fan wasn't touching the chimney so , they weren't reacting, I haven't hit it with a hammer, but it does just seem to be on outside, seems still robust. Thanks for answers, I will rub it down and paint with stove paint. as an aside, there is also a crack in stove door glass, it hasn't cracked so much that it has a crack on inner or outer surface, you can't feel it, but there is a crack within the glass of a couple of inches, should I replace, or will it be ok if it doesn't crack to the outside surface. ?
  4. The plants plastic, so no water there. Gulp, hope not. I do usually cap the top , no water below noticeable, could be a big job then. Do I paint it with stove paint.?
  5. Getting stove ready for winter, all swept, and baffle put back in without rebreaking the cemented bricks from last year. I moved the Eco fan, which has been in front of stove chimney since March, I notice directly behind it, the stove chimney has rusted. This has only happened since the fire was shut down. The stove and chimney is as old as boat and never had this before (10 years) cant see we have done anything different to cause this'sudden rusting. Anyway, what is best solution? Rub it down, apply fertan rust remover and paint with stove paint is my thinking , but is this the right way to go about it ?w The rust is only where the Eco fan was hiding it, although it wasn't touching the chimney , round the back and sides is fine.

  7. It also depends if your being charged by foot for mooring.
  8. Thanks for tips, but there is a boat yard about 4 hours cruise away, I will ring them to get me a bearing and possibly get them to fit it. Thanks again for all the help.
  9. Lard, cheers will try it. The tiller is in its cup, so just the bearing needed.
  10. That rope fix sounds good till I get a new bearing, not got any grease tho apart from old left overs in hole. But still might help.
  11. Thanks for replies, really helpful, I will see if I can get anything of note from demolished old bearing.
  12. It says F208 on the pic, so is that a particular size ? I will look on line
  13. The bearing has completely disintegrated. If it happened above the locks there was a boat yard there, could've sorted it, but now below the Bingley five and three rise, don't fancy doing up and down again. i will see if I can find matching on line.
  14. How do I source a new bearing ?
