Hi All

First we hope you all had a very merry Christmas and will have a happy and fun new year, good to see at least 1 Forumite on the water yesterday down at Potter Heigham (Broad Ambition, Hi Griff).

Well I need some advice on running the boat in winter with the inboard engine!

On ‘Blue Skies’ with the outboard it was no problem draining down the domestic water and still running the outboard so we could go out even through the coldest times. But what about with the Inboard BMC 1.5 in L’Ondine?? having drained down the domestic water is it OK/Safe to run the engine with the calorifier/hot water tank empty or do I have to refill the domestic water system to cruise with L’Ondine.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year Everyone.

John & Jo

Kind regards, John(Captain Joshie)& Jo, 'Rosie L'Ondine' L799.

Hi Johmn and JO
Glad to see you have been out on the water .I drain the water and use a seperate container with a submersable pump to a seperate tap so we have  fresh water with us when we go out.Also pop some anti freeze mixture in the intake every time we leave the boat.Makes going on the water a lot easier. Smile

See you down the river,
Roy and Diane
