  1. All done without issue, slight anticlimax really, no issues with the current coming in to the river or back out to sawley cut, our boat seemed to push through the currant easily Anyway thanks for the support all 👍🏻
  2. Thanks for all the pointers, we’re going for it tomorrow afternoon 🤞
  3. We are just looking to get to Sawley at the moment, no boat issue we’re quite novice but am planning to get a friend onboard who’s experienced, it’s seems to have dropped quite a lot and is predicated to go down a bit more by Thursday what point does it go Amber to green
  4. I’ve been monitoring the river level and it seems to have dropped quite a lot this week, the forecast is good until Friday for rain Will the river between Shardlow and sawley be passable by Thursday do you think
  5. It’s not pressurised, it’s a grey plastic box with a pipe in to the bottom and a clip on lid about 12 inch’s tall I’ll get an image later
  6. Right thanks all, it’s a 6 entry Calorifier so separate systems, electric pump it Was well air-locked, now all bled and running I’ve only put about an inch in the bottom of the header how much should I have in there

  8. Thanks all for the great advice, I’m working but am going to take a look with my dad later I’ll feedback when we get more of an idea, we’re at Shardlow presently until the river goes down so for a while
  9. It has two headers the engine is on the brass pressure cap type the heating is a grey box with a lid that’s just clipped in place
  10. That does make sense, there are a number of stop valves in the engine room and under the bed by the cylinder, I take it if I just shut off in the engine room and try it from there thanks for the advice
  11. We have recently purchased our first boat and collected it yesterday, the boats previous keeper had sold it due to ill health so we have only had the benefit of a handover from a brokerage with a point out as its its fittings, we were told the BMC runs the calorifier as does the boatman stove. The system has a run along both sides of the boat and feeds a small radiator in the bedroom, we were told this had been turned off due to a leak on it. we cruised about 5 hours towards our moorings and had hot water from the tap, we fired up the stove whilst still running and after inspection of the road all looked good, my dad turned on the rad and we started to get a flow that was extending down towards the stove at the front and no leaks. i then started to get a back feed through the header in the engine room. once the rad was closed off this stopped again. is that due to a crossover in the systems running together? is that an air bleed issue? ive been looking around for an answer and note the mention of antifreeze? Is that a standard motor antifreeze?
