Taylors 065 cylindrical paraffin heater

Dear All,

With the original Taylors 065 heater on board, albeit leaking and hence condemned, and with winter approaching, most grateful if anyone could advise on the feasibility of refurbishing this unit, sourcing of spares and associated manual in the UK.

Furthermore, considering that the burning of paraffin produces water with the prospect of increasing humidity and hence condensation, please can any user of these Taylors paraffin heaters confirm that the majority of the resulting water vapour is indeed ejected via the flue?

Thanks in anticipation,

Re: Taylors 065 cylindrical paraffin heater

I used one of the early Taylors Parraffin heaters for a winter and loved it. Dried the boat out (a rather small boat) and worked under sail. I did change from the original Roarer Burner, to a normal adjustable burner, but that was when kerosene/parraffin burners were cheap. Give it a try. I think you will like it. _____Grant. P.S. I got rid of the priming cup and used Tilley wicks.
