Boats with screen demisters - check pipes

Postby Pure Harmony » Sat Jul 07, 2018 6:45 am

Hi,
We have a Squadron 42 fitted with demisters. The eberspacher system takes fresh hot water from the calorifier and pumps it via a heat exchanger like a car heater. Ours is fitted above the starboard cabin wardrobe but this is not obvious as fascia glued on. The pipes are a real mess despite it being fitted by a dealer. The short length reinforced rubber pipes join the plastic to the copper the heat exchanger and are bent 20 degrees in about 1 inch. In our case this split and sprayed the contents of water tank, hot at first then cold some 500 litres, over the helm controls, through headlining of the cabin. The carpet held it back so no sounds from bilge resulting in paddling pool in cabin and the upholstery a write off.
Please be aware and check. Pipes need replacing and longer to prevent stress.

Fairline say dealer fitted part so not their problem!
