Got a current BSC.

That is actually not a BSS fail.

(however it may well fail a BSC - it doesn't look 'bright enough')

 

 

The following is an Advisory and not mandatory

 

8.10.5
Are all solid fuel appliances free of unintended gaps? 
Check the condition of solid fuel appliance
surfaces, seams and openings which can be
seen.
Solid fuel appliances must show no obvious signs of:
 unintended gaps or cracks in the outside surface or
seams of the stove; or,
 unintended gaps greater than 2mm in the loading door
seal or door glass; or,
 loose, damaged or missing cover plates.

Surely the whole advert is a practical joke...if not it’s quite a worry.

I think the style could be described as "vernacular".

 

A good estate agent (warning, oxymoron) could shift it?

I cannot see how any surveyor would pass a boat with a pyrex dish as the door glass...

You could argue that he cannot pass it unless the boat passes the 'ventilation' guidelines.  If it is not a 'required' requirement than however daft it may seem he cannot fail it.

 

He cannot fail the boat because of the pyrex-dish fire door (unless there is something else that is actually non-compliant)

 

There is some confusion as to the meaning of the BSS certificate (some even think it means the boat is safe, won't sink and is equivalent to a survey)

Remember, the BSS is not intended to 'protect' the occupants, it is intended to protect the :

1) Water from pollution

2) Passers by on the towpath

3) Passing boats and boaters.

 

The argument for the introduction of the CO alarms in 2019, was not for the protection of the boat occupants, but for the protection of passers-by (weak argument in my book !)

Now if only you could get that inboard engine working again to produce 1.21 gigawatts of power, you could travel back to a time when it was a perfectly useable boat.

I suspect the scorched wood next to it may prevent the issue of a bss!

Yup - he'll fail on that (assuming it is a scorch mark and not a 'damp' patch (or similar)

 

This is a mandatory requirement :

 

8.4.1
Are appliances and surrounding surfaces clear of signs of heat damage and leaking fuel? 
Check all appliances and all their
surrounding surfaces for signs of
heat damage and leaking fuel.
Appliances and all their surrounding surfaces must not show signs of:
• scorching, blistering or discolouration; or,
• fuel leakage; or,
• smoke or soot deposits; or,
• heat damage or deterioration to appliance structure.

I wonder what the "bigger project" is that has attracted him away from this "lesser project" and is forcing the sale. God help us, can any project possible be bigger than this one? (Maybe straightening up his grip on reality perhaps?)
