How to install a Morso Squirrel 1410 wood burning stove on a boat

Against all the odds, re: whether the weather would allow work to begin in the fire place first place…
  • Step 1: Get Mr Stove (and his associate) to do the job for you – safe in the knowledge that they know their stuff.
  • Step 2: Sit back and watch, without getting in the way or appearing to be on inspection duty.
  • Step 3: Take loads of photos to share with your friends.
  • Step 4: Make lots of cups of tea. 
Over the past two days both Mr Stove’s have proved that their standard of workmanship is of the highest possible. Each step of the way, time has been no object. Perfection, professionalism and safety has been their priority amidst hard graft…
As you know we started off with a virtual and unimaginable concept…
 
Which turned into this, fireboards in place, squirrel being tried out for placement…

Then this, tiles in the hearth last night…

Meanwhile the squirrel sits patiently next to it, waiting to be fed…

And the hole in the roof inside tonight is bunged up with a towel in a plastic bag, simple yet sophisticated…

The roof outside yesterday, a bucket full or three of thick snow removed, but no hole in sight yet…

Preparation: With all tools in place we heard the boat scream as it was being cut open, but didn’t dare go outside…

Mr Stove fitting the chimney collar today…

Afterwards, all set and ready to go, but not yet because the flue needs some adjustment…

A reality check on day one, was this really happening…?

Well, the two "Mr Stoves" are back tomorrow to finish off. Being a couple of perfectionists ourselves when it comes to boaty jobs, we’re both very impressed…
