  1. I think we were thinking it has some sort of impeller rather than diaphragm
  2. Thanks everyone. How offem does the Gulper need to be cleaned as opposed to how often does the shower sump need to be cleaned.
  3. Following on from another post regarding shower sump trays. I have now discovered in all the boxes of bits left behind by the previous owner a Whale Gulper Pump 220. Others mentioned that its better to do away with the Sump Tray and just attach the shower Gulper to the bottom of the shower tray and then over the side via a skin fitting. Now I know that sounds simple enough but can someone explain the set up as by co owner does not understand (coming from sailboats) how you don't need a sump of any kind!!!! Regards
  4. Tbf didn't know these existed whats the link please
  5. I looking for more information on the manufacturer of our narrowboat from anyone who might recognise the design. From other posts I have heard it may have been from Sowerby Bridge. The distinctive gas lockers at the back seen to be the most distinguishing feature. The roof itself has been rebuilt of epoxied marine ply over a steel frame so probably different from the original. The bow drains under the floor to the stern. If anyone can help with her history and origin it would be very much appreciated 😎
  6. She does have quite a high bow. The top has been rebuilt in epoxied wood over a steel frame so probably looks a little different but thanks its a great help 😎
  7. Yep the gear box which was remov3d in the top picture but we do have it 😎
  8. As the OP The issue with this system and overheating seems to be that it was loosing water and coolant from a poorly attached hose the black one over the top of the engine The fan mentioned comes on when the engine gets hot to cool the engine and it does work. The system will be available at the end of August as we are swapping out our engine. Here is another picture of it
  9. We are going to cut an access hatch behind removable Companionway steps for that very reason 😎 Yes indeed gearbox was detached for transport but we do have it
  10. I don't mean the vetus raw water strainer but some suggest on another thread the actual inlet can get blocked on the outside via plastic bags crap etc meaning they have to go in the water or at least find a method of clearing it
  11. So upon reading about how raw water intakes get blocked up meaning a trip into the canal. Is there any reason that the intake could not be mounted near the weed hatch or at least with touching distance so if something was to catch/block the inlet hole a reach around via the weed hatch would be a much more civilised way of clearing the debris ????
  12. Interesting that you mention Teddesley boats as Although my boat is of an unknown to me make I have had people suggest it was a Teddesley due to the rear mounted gas lockers Have they not shut down due to illness I followed another link earlier from another thread
  13. We are more than happy to keep it indirect raw water but have heard bad things about weed and silt if anyone can shed light on this or any solutions to prevent problems
  14. If anyone can shed better light on the idea of drawing water from the canal then please feel free as this was our original option idea (as said being sailors this is am quite common on saltwater boats) but some seem to think it's a bad idea with reports of inlets clogging up within 90 seconds through silt and weed build up.
  15. We are hearing mixed advice on this. It's something we are used to both coming from sea and sailing where saltwater corrosion is the biggest issue but we are hearing nasty things about silt and weed being too much of a problem on the canals
