The Kabola boiler flue and roof collar which was fabricated some time ago has now been fitted.
The three drain valves for the C/H and domestic water haave been found to be inconvenient to use mainly due to leaking along the valve stem when opened.
To allow convenient and secure drain downs these valves will shortly be removed and replaced by ball valves.
Since it is almost opposite the solid fuel stove in the saloon we have decided to remove it
to give more furnishing flexibility.
However reinstatement, should it be desired, will be convenient as the T fittings have been plugged and the radiator and couplings removed intact.
The large diameter pipes through the saloon will be tidily boxed in but a slot along the top will be included to allow heat to escape.
