The wind has dropped
... the water is calm once again
... and the sun is up before 7am on Saturday morning
We've had problems with the Webasto (central heating/water heater) leaking water and has ceased to work so George has dismantled it to discover the problem. He thought originally it was the seals and burner and had ordered, received ad fitted the parts but to no avail as it still leaked. Next option after testing the combustion chamber for leaks by heating it up with a hot gun and pouring water into the channels and seeing it pour out again at the bottom even though the cracks were not obvious. He found the part number and cost (£450ish) and we asked at Bourne End Marina if we could have it delivered to them, 'yes of course' they said. George ordered the part from Evesham Marina at the fantastic price of £350! The guy on the phone was most efficient and we should receive it today (Tuesday). Hopefully a good result!
This is what I was doing whilst he tinkered with whatever he's tinkering with ... sitting in the bow looking out over the Thames with a cup of tea and a good book.
It's a good life!
