Post Subject: Water loss

I have recently purchased a 6 year old narrow boat fitted with a 4 cylinder 45 Barrus Shire engine. The engine had only done 150 hours, however the core plugs had to be replaced due to leakages (frost damage?). This was completed before purchase. I have since added almost 200hours to the engine. It uses no oil and runs cool and there are no obvious signs of water leaks. But I have to top up the expansion tank every 8 hours or so of cruising. Any thoughts would be very welcome on how to sort this water loss out Ian
