I bought this fire about 5 years ago with the intention of fitting it in our previous boat but never got round to it. I got it off e-bay brand new and delivered for a stupid winning bid of £50.
I then bought the canopy and an LPG conversion kit and that came to £120, so all in all a bargain.
I am glad I didn't fit it in the other boat now as it chucks out so much heat. It would have been way too much for the space.
I have made the flue from 3mm walled tube which catches and radiates loads more of the otherwise wasted flue heat.
So why a gas fire you may ask as I have oil CH. Well 3 reasons, as a secondary form of heat in case the CH fails for any reason, as a focal point and also gas because as a second source I'd rather carry a gas bottle than logs or coal and there's no ash to clear up and the heat is on and off on demand. OK I know firewood can be generally gathered for free, but I really can't see myself gathering and chopping and storing etc.
A local wood turner made me this oak flue trim which I am delighted with. He is going to make the trims for the mushroom vents when I know the size.
A lot of preparation has been going on in the bedroom. Next week I should finish the bed and furniture fitting. The bed base is made and the first wardrobe is in place.
