  1. I think that I would cut a aluminium or steel disc 20mm bigger than the hole, use plenty of decent silicon sealer and use pop rivets to fix it.
  2. I had a similar thing two weeks ago. I hadn't been to the boat for a week but when I did it was flooded at the stern end. I initially thought it was the tank but a friend said that as the pump was still trying to run it meant that the tank was ok and there was a leak after the pump. My tank is right at the front the water pipes go from it towards the stern halfway along the length of my boat is my pump, so I started checking from there and sure enough I found a very small jet of water coming from the calorifier. I replaced this and now the pump does not run unless I turn on a tap and there are no leaks .........................................................
  3. Thanks for all of your replies. I will be getting a coal/wood burning stove but not ready for it yet. I will remove the room stat and stop touching stuff that I dont understand ...............................
  4. Ive tried wireing in a room stat but it works for a while and then on the 2nd or 3rd time of turning off when the temp set on the stat is reached it does not turn back on. I get the feeling I have either wired incorrectly or the webasto start timer has done its 3 starts then will not start again ? is there a way of clearing the 3 programed start times so that it just starts and stops when the temprature reaches or falls below the set temperature ? Any advise gratefully received ............... thanks Gal.
  5. I have fitted a basic Honeywell thermostat. I have to press the ignition (flame emblem) webasto timer/controller and leave it on, when the temperature is set and reached the thermostat contacts open and the webasto switches off, and comes back on when the temperature drops (all good). This all works fine for a while but then the webasto timer/controller apears to switch itself off and I have to press the flame button to start the process again........... Does anyone why this is happening ?
  6. Im looking at redesigning the shower room on my 60' narrowboat. Iam thinking of cutting the floor an sinking the shower tray so that it sits directly on the joists so I have a a bit more head height. Has anyone done this or have any other solutions ?
  7. How do you get an 8'x4' sheet of 18mm ply into a narrowboat. I havnt tried yet, but is it possible ?
