I blamed the cold pipe, and the boatyard blamed what i burnt!
The issue for me is, thats the build up from 10 days fire!
I cannot afford posh wood from good sources dried in a barn for 38 years! I can afford free wood off the beach, the woods, and the hedge, the end.
So the opinion was taken to enlarge my pipe that way i'd at least have more time between having to clean the pipe, (once a week takes the Michael!)
So out came the plasma gun and the welder and bingo the new chimney was on!
Does it look a bit ott?
