  1. Thank you, is that better than the flu wrap I featured, the wood and even the tiles were scarily hot last night, I am still not sure what to do. I put some supermarket foil up for tonight, £2.49 has solved problem pro tem
  2. So , thinking of getting this as a replacement, not happy with wood getting hot. Stick that on wall where took other stuff off ?
  3. Since the main benefit from foil-faced bubble wrap is due to its radiant-barrier facing, the product is basically worthless unless it faces an air space. So if it is facing an air space, as mine was, it’s radiant barrier effect works, the wood ,now exposed is getting hot, as before the foil,it was cool to touch, hot wood is worse than cool reflective foil.
  4. Hi, got the fire going hot, but only one third full, and the wall where I took that stuff down is hot to touch, mainly the edge nearest the fire, do you find this on your wood nearest the fire, it is quite hot, think this was my original thoughts before I put the aluminium up.It is measured bss compliant, but seems too hot to me again. Or is this normal ?
  5. Looks so much better off. Thanks again.
  6. So should of used this stuff, thanks for the education guys, how they say fire retardant at E is amazing to me, thanks for all replies.
  7. But having looked at a similar product, fire resistant , then gives an E rating, amazing.
  8. The fire board, is fine, I just used this to reflect heat, I will take it down, and probably don’t need it anymore, however, I can’t find the rating on the link to product provided, so it may be A1, as it says non flammable , and not e that goes behind fire board. will find another product anyway, thanks for your answers.
  9. Thanks, I will take it down, how can they say non flammable…? Disgraceful. will look for something else, although the fire doesn’t get as hot now as that first year. Thanks for looking.
  10. Has been fine over last two winters, do you think it is not appropriate.?
  11. Says flame resistant on the spec, are you saying it is flammable? Says non flammable. Do you disagree ?
  12. Hi, thanks for your concerns, I have looked up the orders and they are shown below, they have been up two years, but I would take them down if more experienced think they’re a risk. I did point them out on last bss as I explained walls were getting too warm for my liking.But he never really looked at them, just said fire would of got hotter as I had given it a bit of revamp.
  13. I put it up two years ago after the walls seemed to be getting too warm, why do you think I should take it down now, behind and around the fire it is on top of tiled fire board, to reflect heat. Above the boards, has the same effect, why is it dangerous?
  14. It’s cold to touch and reflects heat
  15. Re visiting this topic, couldn’t find anyone to replace flu, three places looked at it, said they would sort it, but then refused after keeping me wait around, Nantwich I was waiting three weeks, and eventually just said he wasn’t going to do job. Overwater, work shop ,wouldn’t commit and messed me around for two weeks, made promises but let me down. So I got a steel band, wrapped it around rusted outer skin( inner skin was intact) then attached two jubilee clips above and below, put heat resistant silicon, over the hole first, and over the out side top and bottom. Painted it black heat resistant paint, and now got it burning away, just keeping an eye on it now. Will try and put b4 and after pic up. Cost me £100. The Morso flu kit I was going to get was about £650, and if I had used those marinas would of been a few ton on top of that, so fingers crossed it works.
  16. When I bought the boat, the pump was knackered he had been using a paella pump to extract the oil, so I bought a new pump off ASAP, so I will have a look for hose tail , and or spigot.
  17. No that’s not my engine, I just saw it on another place, and it reminded me I need that bit, at the moment a little plug screws in there, but I know that bent bit should be there, or available, as I have seen it fitted on the same engine, and makes sense.
  18. Hi just a quick question, I have an Isuzu 42 engine, but when changing oil, I have to fit a piece of hose pipe to the pump extractor, so my question is, what is the name of that little bent tube on top of pump, as mine is not there and would make the job easier, I presume it just screws on. Thanks.

  20. Thanks for all replies, it’s just me who reports to crt then for inconsiderate behaviour, I hope more people do it in future, take pics and videos of the same, hopefully to remind people to be considerate. The thread is getting a bit personal, which wasn’t my intention, I was having a moan because I had two days on the run , in different locations of it happening, anyway, let’s all relax and have fun boating, be nice to each other.
  21. I did explain that I had confronted people on three occasions, and it didn’t go well, so I don’t do that now, I just report to crt. But you did spell I.Q. adequately.
  22. Hmm , Matt Hancock thought the same till he was discovered too.
  23. Who is “us” don’t try to hide in the crowd.
