Please reorient the shower heater photo, take another photo of it from a greater distance and post them.

Slow but positive progress. Wheels on just sorting the clutch actuator arm and centre stand out, they are proving very fiddly to get working after powder coating...!!1 [ Invalid Attachment ]

Fantastic heater set-up. Looks like it screams out the BTU's. Have you considered a perforated windscreen (quick mount tabs are already in place)? I only ask due to lot's of experience in windy environments, and how the heat transfer is severely diminished from flame to aluminum surface with a steady wind. A shield has us boiling water from snow at 17k within 7mins with an MSR 600 International...without, it takes forever and wastes fuel. Cheers

Why not use waste heat from the engine cooling system to heat water?  A small thermostat controlled bypass in the coolant circuit and a heat exchanger in the water tank will heat water to any temperature you want.  Free heat.

I think simplicity wins the day here, I considered using a water jacket around the exhaust but then junked the idea after realising the difficulties of heat transfer from the exhaust to water pipes etc, I have a wind shield that comes with the Soto kit but it isnít refined enough for this application so will make one like you say to fit the mounting tabs and perforated also. I fitted a pipe that ran to the rear of the tank to circulate the water as it heated intermittently and this definitely helped speed things along...
