I guess it's about time I added to this. I've been working away, I seem to take more time thinking about it than actually doing it.
I've been working on getting the boiler installed for the hot water heat. I've pretty much gotten the water supply to the boiler done. The exhaust
is done. Most of the fuel supply to the boiler is done (I'm old, and not going to lay in the snow under a bus when it's only 15 degrees out
Boiler assy with cover off.
Detail of exhaust out of the boiler. It came with a flimsy looking bendable pipe that I didn't like. The blue tube is air intake. Square adapter
is to go around the intake.
Detail of exhaust out the roof.
Boiler water supply. It's a closed pressurized system with expansion tank.
Water supply system open for water fill and maintenance.
All closed up. Note extensive use of seat steel. The swing arm is part of an old cattle feeder.
The gray box just forward of the boiler is a marine water heater. It is a heat exchanger so that the boiler will heat domestic hot water,
it is also 110v for when hooked to shore power. There is also a heat exchanger that will take heat from the engine and heat the boiler/water heater
loop. Pictures to come later.
