Our small stove has a 4” outlet, and we use 4”/100mm diameter single wall flue. If you would like a flue kit with a 5″/125mm sizing, then please specify this in the order note.
Please note that our stove is not included with this installation kit.
This flue kit provides an attractive, safe, and efficient solution for installing our small stove in a canal boat, Dutch barge, or wide beam boat. It can be installed in accordance with BS:8511:2010, (which requires the flue exiting the cabin to be twin wall insulated) and it also provides a more traditional appearance to the flue parts which are visible above and below deck.
This canal boat flue kit uses 100mm/4″ single wall flue pipe inside the cabin. The single wall flue pipe must be 300mm away from any combustible surfaces, or these surfaces must be shielded in order for the flue pipe to be positioned closer to the wall. If you would like the single wall flue pipe to travel in line with the angle of the boat, then you will need to incorporate a 15 degree offset from the stove to the start of the twin wall flue. The first 500mm length of twin wall flue is supported by a wall band. The exit hole through the inner combustible head lining needs to be 275mm in diameter. This hole is covered by the trim plate. The exit hole through the steel hull can be 179mm diameter, giving a 2mm clearance around the flue. The second 300mm length of twin wall flue is supported by the collar support, which can be connected to the twin wall flue with two short 3mm diameter 5mm long self tapping screws. The deck flange is secured to the deck using 6mm bolts, which will pass through the flanges into a drilled and tapped hole, this flange is then covered by a collar cover. The top section then attaches, along with the rain cap. Both are held by a locking band, which can be easily undone to remove the rain cap or top section if required.
If you’re looking to get stuck into some wood-fired stovetop cooking then it’s worth contacting us to help you configure your flue kit with our rear exit kit. This liberates the entirety of your stovetop, which gives you more space for you to use a kettle or any pans with your small stove. You can also add a stainless steel cooktop option to your Hobbit stove, which allows you to cook at a range of temperatures on your stovetop. This additional stove option also helps to prevent any abrasion to your stovetop which can be caused by your pans and it’s also removable, which makes it quick and easy to clean.
Alternatively, if you’re just looking to use your stovetop to heat up a kettle or a pan, then you might want to consider our gallery rail option for your small stove. This will enable you to safely cook some food or boil a kettle on your stovetop whilst you travel, as your kettle or pan will remain secure on your stovetop as you chug along!
Do I need an AD cowl?
If your canal boat is surrounded by trees or other buildings, then there might not be a consistent flow of air across the top of your flue. On stormy days you might experience down draught problems, where the flue draw momentarily stops. This can potentially lead to smoke being blown back into the stove. To eliminate this, the rain cap which is included in this flue kit can be swapped for an anti-down draught cowl.
