Hi, I only can say that the original hose diameter together with the length to the Owner Cabin was Bit sh*t!! I installed a 90mm diameter hose including Isolation. My exhaust is also isolated! No trouble with the heater since then, and everytime warm inside, when it was cold outside👌
best regards

Hi Bjoern,

I've installed the 90mm duct all the way to the Master Cabin now and it is all covered in the thermal sock, the only section under the saloon heads, that I can't get to hasn't but I'm happy if the heads get a bit warmer as this doubles as the wet room for coats & salopettes.  Although talking to the specialist guy he's suggested a method of removing this section too, so I'll look at it and decide whether to replace or not.

The constantly open outlet that was in the saloon is now the larger one in the Master Cabin, so I can shut the saloon off at night and send, in theory, warm air on to the front in the morning.

However, despite finishing the insulated ducting off shortly, do I buy a new unit to replace my unworkable one, or, as I've been without it working for 6 years, just leave it for any subsequent owner to fit at a later date.

Well I've listened to the experts & my ST5000 will never run as intended, also the ducting has been installed by boat builders not heating Engineers, so I've no chance.

Before I think about whether to sort this out once and for all, or just sort out the ducting properly and any new potential owners, should we God forbid, come to sell our pride & joy, can install a new unit for themselves. I'm going to test my original plan & fit an in line variable speed fan under the chart table & see if my theory works. I have also moved the heat sensor that causes most of the ST issues away from the main body.

It's all reconnected, the fans electrics have been wired in temporarily for now & I'll soon fire it up and see how long it or even if it works !
