  2. They have confirmed that the temperatures at the collar end are too high for silicone sealants, which is why people on this thread have reported a burning smell. As long as one end of the flue is free to expand length ways ( the collar end ) there is no problem.

  5. Like I said silicone isn't to be used on the flue collar. Good Afternoon Richard, You should use a fire rope and black fire cement for the collar of the flue. The heat resistant silicone can be used higher ##- please type your reply above this line -## Good Afternoon. You should use a fire rope and black fire cement for the collar of the flue.

  6. Unless it's falling out of place exposing the stove walls there is no reason to repair or replace it. Personally I prefer not doing unnecessary work or costs but each to their own.
  7. There shouldn't be any wood near enough to the stove to get hot. If there is it can reach a super dry state over time and then self combust via pyrolysis even if it's not even being scortched in normal use.
  8. Another reminder about foil bubble wrap being mis-sold as insulation. https://www.greenbuildingadvisor.com/article/stay-away-from-foil-faced-bubble-wrap
  9. False logic I'm afraid. The refractory brick is only there to absorb heat , a cracked brick works exactly the same as an uncracked one. You could just fire cement it back together for a couple of quid if you really must.
  10. Pointless concern on narrow boats since there are no standards of welding or fabrication on the hulls , the " welder" doesn't even have to be qualified.
  11. When did the already well known historical term "wideboats" ( and narrowboats) change to " widebeams" and why ?
  12. Buy them frozen already cooked and just bake them for 30 mins at 150 C in a cast iron pot on top of the stove. ( Dutch oven ) stop wasting time and fuel.
  13. Why would you possibly want to waste money on replacing a cracked fire brick? What do you think the crack will do, let the fire leak out ?
  14. That's because it's not meant to be used in such direct proximity to the fire. That's why as stated, it smokes toxic fumes if you do. Putting bubble foil behind the stove is pure burn your boat out territory.
