  1. bramble cutting is lovely if you can get on not many moorings and popular. Marbury park is lovely plenty of mooring and nice to walk round not far from Anderson boat lift and a crt service station
  2. Amaising amount of cupboard space. As long as you are organised will sleep four with little space for passing each other. good point is plenty of safe space when cruising out the back. Fantastic solid boats.
  3. Another pleased customer who used Martyn Ross. Lovely chap explains everything so you can understand if any problems.
  4. I did them five years ago and have had no leaks
  5. I used clear silicone sealer as where the window glass sits acts as a gutter for rain water. there’s a small hole which directs any rain water out of the boat.
  6. Setting your battery up you use the C20 reading for your battery’s supplied by the manufacture which is slightly less than the battery one. Roughly if your battery’s are 460 it’s about 420, you need to check with manufacture. All I do then is charge battery’s fully then with nothing charging battery’s let them drop below 85% to synchronise. After this I just watch the voltage reading and amps reading to monitor the battery charge
  7. Having both roof hatches and also opening side hatches with glass in. I wish I did not have the roof hatches there a pain with condensation this time of the year. Much prefer the view and light of side hatches.
  8. Diesel Engine Mitsubishi K3D 979 cc 21PS Modell K3D Engine Type 3 cylinder Diesel capacity 979 ccm max.power at 2700 rpm 21,0 PS / 15,45 kW Bore 73x78 mm Starter system Electric start 12 Volt Weight 124,0 kg Dimensions (LxWxH) 560 x 430 x 590 mm
  9. Have a corner bubble stove which came with the boat, it has been the best thing on the boat, clean no ash controllable heat. Convinced friends who have had one fitted they love it and will not go back to a coal/wood burner.
  10. Yes found that out today not enough fast heat from a blow torch. So a hacksaw to limit damage to unions I wanted to reuse.
  11. Appreciate all the helpful comments and the utube video of how the connection works heat would not move the joints even with the biggest pipe wrench, so angle grinder to cut the clamps and a hacksaw to cut the joints with threads on I need to reuse
  12. The bottom housing sits under the engine and gearbox you would have to remove the engine to remove it as the engine mountings bolt through it. Unfortunately the exhaust goes through the rear of the bottom housing.you can see it in picture
  13. Unfortunately my beta engine is in one of them suitcase type boxes. On looking again it was the same joint in the most inaccessible place as the joint at the silencer. I am not too fussed if I have to replace the silencer and coupling as long as I can get the flexible pipe out of the elbow near the engine. Have wrapped all the joints in pieces of cloth now and soaked them with penetrating fluid to start with.
  14. There is no flange at the engine end just a screwed in 90 degree elbow at the bottom,it is a beta engine in a sound proof box only hope is that the big nut releases or cut it. Think it looks worst than it is, if it needs a new silencer it is not too bad but will still have a problem if it is seized the other end. Worked on Citroen cars for 27 years so am quite use to things being seized.
  15. Thanks for that knew there had to be a way
