Post Subject: winterisation

Is there a recommended list of items that should be carried out prior to winter please.My calorifier has split (frozen) and the insurer thinks I should have drained it down. I emptied my cold tank, and as much pipework as possible, but not the hot tank itself. What do you think please.

I am afraid that had you asked for a typical winterisation procedure I would have happily answered but as soon as you mention insurance company things are different. There is no way I am going to try to second guess and insurance company and no way I am going to get between a reader and an insurance company. I think I must advise that you ask your insurance company for a definitive task list. Much depends upon how the boat is plumbed and exactly what other precautions you took. Sorry. Tony Brooks
