After yesterday's breakdown (see previous post) the RCR man arrived promptly at 9.30 this morning and by 10.30 he was gone and we were fixed. The poor bloke opted to investigate and effect a repair in the rain and wind, but he remained cheerful throughout. All it was, was one of the pipes that feed the calorifier heater coil had come adrift, so all it needed was a new jubilee clip and a good tighten up and a cooling system refill. He did take a lot of trouble (more than I would have done I think) to get any air out of the system. The engine has been running now for an hour and a half and all is good. Phew!
We get a free basic membership of RCR along with our GJW boat insurance. We just have to pay £65 for a callout which includes 2 hours labour on site. I reckon that's a bargain. Our man had to drive an hour and a half to get to us.
The weather forecast for the rest of the day is not conducive to boating if you don't have to, and we're in no hurry so we'll stay put.
