Post Subject: Chimney Collar

I need to replace the badly corroded collar on the roof of my Springer. Any information on how to remove the old one and how to seal the new one would be appreciated.Mike

Post Subject: Chimney Collar

The chimney collar is more often than not a very heavy chuck of cast iron and although it may rust such rust is likely to be superficial so I can not be sure about what you mean by a chimney collar. Springers are getting on rather now and being a budget boat may well have done something a bit different with the chimney. They could have even welded the stove pipe to the roof. Usually the cast collars are held into the roof by two bolts or studs. You need access to the underside of the roof to be undo them. I sealed mine with a bead of high temperature (stove) silicon around the boss and one of the more normal marine sealers over the rest of it. I think I used a Stika product but there are several others. If you email a photo of what concerns you to Tony@tb-training.co.uk I will have a look to see if I can be more helpful.

Thanks Tony. I will send a pic in a few days. The stove pipe is not welded to the roof as I replaced it some years ago and it fits into something (a collar?). Mike
