    Hummm I saw it on Apollo duck a few months ago and I swear it mentioned hull repairs needed but every other advert I’ve seen it didn’t mention that?

    Oh wow price drop again. When I last looked at it I got the impression a group of enthusiasts had lost enthusiasm lol. Do you have any insider knowledge as I had been keeping an eye on her

    No way I recon you’d get paragon for 20k another 15 sorting her out pending on the condition of the engine. Or is there hidden hull work to be too? Seams like the owners wanted rid for a while I saw her in the towpath newspaper last months classifieds

    Whoops sorry Pete, am always late to the party on these conversations, don’t mind me. P.s cutting bits off and welding bits on that aren’t sympathetic repairs are a no go area for me. Plenty other less significant vessels out there to muck about with.

    WIDGEON is often moored up outside Victoria park in London. They use her as a Theatre boat, but I’ve never seen a showing there lol.

    How many coils dose my calorifier have?

    Ok good points about a pressurised system in a small space, luckily I do have a stainless Steel header tank that I’ve acquired so all good there. Iam at work atm but ill draw up a diagram of the boat for u to look at later with my initial lay out ideas. Thanks again Sam

    How many coils dose my calorifier have?

    What would u use instead Sam? I have thought about pump failure I was wondering if I could add in a pressure/temp gauge to the pipe work on the flow some where near the back to monitor temperature, was also thinking of some train like steam release horn for emergency’s. I was gunna run the pressure release to the engine bildge, the same place as where the calorifier blow out is?

    How many coils dose my calorifier have?

    Yeh I’ll defiantly need a pump as my burner is at the front and the tank at the back I’ll never get the rize.....also it’s horizontal lol. I’ve been looking at jabsco 12v circulation pumps, the plastic body ones but there not cheep £180! I was Gunnaput two small rads in two as a heat sink. So A new calorifier will wreck my budget lol

    How many coils dose my calorifier have?

    No the only how water source is from the engine as a Plummer connected it when I bought the the boat. Could he of connected the engine too both coils? If there is two that is? Sorry I only just saw your full message, yeh the prv is td off at the top. So yeh mabey both coils are in use on the engine.
