Today is the day we decided that I would come down to the boat alone because we have arranged to have the central heating boiler serviced, and a leak behind it repaired tomorrow.
The boiler is the slimline Alde which stands just to the right of this bulkhead, and is the full height of the space and about 5 inches wide, very compact, but not that gas efficient. Fingers crossed that the leak is just a plumbing joint as I suspect it is. While I've been here today I also took care of an engine bay inspection, battery and coolant fluid levels checked, as well as engine oil. All was well except one of the leisure batteries required a water top up, so will now have to be monitored. When I had replenished it I put the smart charger onto recondition mode. The bank charged up to full OK.
I will report how the service call went later in the week. Margaret, who is still doing a temporary teaching contract, will join me for the weekend on Friday evening. In the meantime, where's that lager kept?
