  14. Chatting with a chap today who is gutting and refitting his 1970’s harborough narrowboat ( ex hire ) and he said that when the refit is completed the paloma gas water heater would be in a cupboard in the bedroom ( currently the kitchen ) i was not sure this would pass BSS despite it passing as a kitchen Thoughts ...??
