SOURCE: water heater pilot light
it also sounds as though the pilot injector could be blocked so when the boiler comes on it extinguishes the pilot & then when the burner goes off boiler shuts down, or also the pilot rate maynot be set right, so when the main burner kicks in it robs the pilot of the gas it requires.
It could be that, or there is lack of ventilation for the boiler, so you get flame lift off when the boiler fires?

Probably a bad solenoid in the gas valve. Higher voltage of a new thermocouple keeps it open longer but it still fails over a period of time. Look into a new gas valve for the water heater.

The gas valve is most likely defective, that is really the only thing that can cause this problem. they are cheap and easy to replace. REMEMBER SHUT THE GAS OFF THE WATER HEATER AND THE HOUSE TO BE SURE OF NO FIRE OR EXPLOSION BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY REPAIRS..
