Some work underway

Ok, so we are mid summer and I have just decided to get some work done on heating no less!

The boat is heated solely from the Morso stove which is at the front of the boat, 50ft from our bed.  The calorifier is all ready to support the addition of some central heating pipes and a couple of rads.  In addition, we need the calorifier heating element connected so we can benefit from hot water and heating.  The heating will be supported by a pump and header tank with exposed copper pipes.

I also suspected, quite correctly, that the batteries, multicell closed, were also past their best and these have been replaced with wet cell open batteries.

I hope to go to the boat Friday lunchtime to inspect the work and take some pictures.

All in all this should make winter trips to the boat much more enjoyable.  I would like to fit a timer in good time but let's get the basics complete first.

Sadly, no trips for a couple of weeks as we have a birthday party and 50th wedding Anniversary to attend.  After that I will be on the boat and tripping down to Alrewas.
