Don't gas yourselves

I was crawling about on the galley floor this morning and peering into the depths of the oven.  No, I was not trying to 'end it all' but rather to find the serial/model number of our Belling oven.  Sue of Nb. No Problem has posted here about recall notices associated with the Boat Safety Scheme (BSS, a boaty MOT) and I was trying to see if this recall might be for our Belling cooker but fortunately it was not.  Safety and good maintenance of appliances are critical wherever you live but in the confines of a boat it is always worth that little bit more caution so if you have a gas cooker on board, and most of us do, check the link.

Um... doesn't your Owner's Manual include the instruction booklet for the cooker?

Should tell you the model number in there!

But you are dead right to make sure and be safe, as opposed to just being...

Keep warm

Hi, me again, have i found the right post this time?
Forgot to tell you there had been a very violent murder close by in late Dec. Reading the local paper the police did an early morning raid in our road a few days ago, no arrests yet, strange feeling that maybe a murderer could be close by.
Any way on a more cheerful note i am in work and your playing games with your oven you boat people have some strange ways,only joking take care love to you all yes even your smelly mutts

Hi Bruce
It was quicker to look at the cooker than get the cumbersome Owner's Manual out of the safe...
take care
