  1. Hello, A family member has recently purchased a dutch barge and looking to get it insured. They're struggling as have only had an "in-water" survey done and compnaies are sayign they need a recent out of water survey. The boat is 1926. Is this normal? Anyone know of any companies that don't require this? I know they should have got an out of water survey done but they couldn't afford it. Cheers, Malcolm
  2. I bled the system before changing the pump and then refilled it. The pump appeared to overheat a little at the start and made a knocking noise. It now runs fine but no hot water pumps through the system.
  3. Hello, just replaced a broken 4dw like for like. Turned it on and it started smoking. Adjust fuel and runs fine now but doesn't gear radiators. I can't hear the pump ticking like I used to. Any ideas what this is? Could it be a fuze? Thanks, Malcoln
  4. Also,l whats the best way to prep the plywood walls for tiling? Should I use waterproof pva?

    LPG Ovens

    thanks, do you have to get a qualified engineer to install and lpg one, or is it only if their fitting a standard gas one with a conversion kit?
  6. Hello, Am looking to fit a high wall stone shower tray. There is a gap in the flooring to get access to the waste joint, however I;m wondering if it is better practice to have the tray raised a little rather than straight on the floorboards? Have never fitted one before so any other tips / advice around grout, sealent etc to use would be much appreciated! Cheers

    12v fridges

    so went for the waeco crx 80. have fitted an started up fine, the freezer doesn't appear to be cold enough though, does anyone know why this is? Also what temperature setting do people run these on? we have it on 3 and have two solar panels so hoping that will be enough. Thanks,
  10. thanks all really helpful
  11. Hello, Have just purchased a Waeco CRX80 12v fridge. I have a lead from the battery in place to connect to. Whats the best way of joining the cables? Thanks, Malcolm

    12v fridges

    ok thanks looking at the crx 80. Are they simple to connect up? I have a double + and double - free in the place for it, left by the previous owner
  13. ok brilliant thanks. Given the cost of engineers and new parts I think it makes sence to get a new model with warranty!
  14. so tried letting some water out of top screw with no luck. have also tried running engine. Loads of smoke comes out now when trying to start. Am thinking it may be better to get a new one as found a direct replacement for £700 with 3 year warranty:https://www.bowerspartsonline.co.uk/brands/eberspacher/complete-heaters-kits/eberspacher-d4wsc-hydronic-4-12v-water-heater-12v-252257050000 Are these easy to replace like for like? Is it a simple disconnect and connect job? Thanks,

    Hello, Looking for a 12v fridge with a freezer compartment for our narrow boat. Have seen a few from shoreline and waeco... Any recommendations for the best option / brand? We are continuous cruising so run off solar with 4 110 amp leisure batteries. Cheers!
