    he isn't ha ha ha ha ha! i am now using it - poor Timmy is weeping along the cut (last seen springing over the hedges to buy his own). It seems to work, mostly, without the ariel and it doesn't need the great stick of the north either... I am hoping EE will end up being good around here in due course. 02 needs some competition. thank you! I grinned. I hope we meet this year soon!
  2. Ah! OK - thank you! A friend of mine is having a similar trouble to you were having.... but I don't think they will sell their boat!
  3. Alan, A bit of a time warp here - but did you solve the increasingly hard to light fridge mystery?
  4. it is a nice mooring alongside the lock, but it has been occupied this year
  5. As ever the obvious isn't quite so. I have been looking for answers to the very same question and came across this thread. I found the question to be unanswered entirely so I asked a BSS and gas safe engineer the question. The answer I posted was theirs, in the interest of good spirit and contributing to a knowledge pool on an uncertain discussion, I added it here for any future people who may come across this thread. It was not an 'answer' but information given to me, that had I read it here, I would have found it useful in making my decision about where to install my appliance. I have put it in the kitchen. Gender is irrelevant. I can't remember the last time my bathroom filled up with hot steam!
  6. I asked someone about this. The BSS does allow the heater to be installed in the bathroom. HOWEVER, the gas safe engineer recommends against it. He says the condensation from the shower can reduce the temperature of the flame causing CO which isn't good. don't shoot the messenger

  11. OK...camera to the ready. I ordered the bits, but one of them was a bit of a surprise - not quite the shape I was expecting....but we shall see.

  13. Thank you everyone. I have 5 inches spare - so that's a good sign. I have been for a class on how to do it from someone who has done it. I have PJ's number on speed dial. what could possibly go wrong!
  14. I did think I would have to lift the engine or cut an access hole in the bulk head.... is it a pig of a job?
  15. I am pretty sure I need to replace the crank shaft oil seal. I was wondering whether anyone had done this on a BMC 1.5 before and what sort of things I should be careful about (if any!). Thank you!
