  1. Thanks for that Tim. In the event I go for another brand of heater would your top bloke still be able to install? Is the Webasto able to run for longer periods? I somehow remember they are not for longer running times on, say, a timer. I am probably wrong.
  2. Which boiler did you have on Whistlestop? Wasn’t the Eberspacher was it.

  4. We're at Claydon on the Oxford on moorings until beginning of April. Would like to have a shufty of your boiler in use. Perhaps we can arrange something.
  5. Most interesting Mark. This is really daunting. I used to be indecisive but I’m not so sure now. The unit you link to seems very good and I’m tempted. Do you know of anyone to install? Thanks Mark.
  6. My temporary next door neighbour has bought a refurbed (not new) Webasto diesel heater. He hasn’t fitted it yet. I need water heating and heating capability not just hot air blowing. This has got me thinking more. I’m looking at the Autoterm unit, but also considering the Webasto, the Eberspacher, and the Mikuni. So mayI ask others opinions of the four units. We all have our favourites. But ease of installation, reliability, and anything else I may have to consider.
  7. Just searched the Hurricane boiler. I don’t doubt they are good but Calcutt who are agents for the company seam to sell the base unit for £2600 and a narrowboat kit for £680, or thereabouts. Plus fitting and all the sundry costs amounts to quite a great deal of money. There are others I’m sure. Research, research research. Is the Eberspacher the one that sounds like an industrial units air conditioning and ventilation system, without the silencer?

Will look deeper into this company.
  9. Hadn’t realised that Tony. Thank you. To add, again, space/room is an issue. Lots to think about.
  10. Rekindling an aged thread. After years of trials and tribulations, repairs and sometimes botched repairs, I have come to the conclusion that our beloved Alde Comfort Slimline 2829(?) boiler is deceased. We have a leak from the header tank somewhere. The lower burner control has stopped controlling. (Will not turn). Well basically it’s duff for a number of reasons. So, two things being considered. 1. Buy a refurbed unit, if there’s any available. Or 2. Source and install a replacement boiler. Either way, would be looking for a LPG Gas Safe chappie in the Banbury area. Presently moored above Claydon Locks on the South Oxford. To add, we use the boiler as a secondary means for hot water/heating. But with an efficient boiler we may well use more frequently. As always, any advice, suggestions or recommendations welcome. Thank you.

  13. I took a dip in the canal, through my own stupidity, at Nantwich in February, a few years ago. Not an episode I’d like to repeat. Glad you’re okay and that you have reported it. I really can’t see the enjoyment of pushing a stranger into the water. Doing this to a mate, I assume, can be fun and still not acceptable, but someone you don’t know. The mind boggles.
