Thanks you for the responses. Since this hot water was renewed in 2008 and seems in absolutely spotless condition other than the electrical short to the 230v heater element we will get prices on both replacing the unit entirely, and on just the element this week before making a decision.
On doing an internet search today it seems to us that the previous Nautic 40L Boiler 40L is now possibly the Quick brand? The new Quick Nautic 40L (http://www.quicknauticalequipment.com/?lng=en&cs1=01&ms1=2&ms2=5&ms3=69&ms4=159 ) looks identical to our Nautic 40L.
Giovanni, where did you source your spiral element from? The Nautic boiler refers to a "Universal" element connection/fitting so am I correct that this is a generic fitting and one can fit any brand elements which has the "universal" type fitting?
The option to insert shut off valves to the water heater from/to the engine water was also suggested to me by the Yanmar mechanic. Seems to be a good idea.
