    Splashed a few $$ on the boat

    Had a few minor issues crop up the last couple of months so only one way to deal with them is have her lifted out onto the hard stand and engage the pros to deal to it, unfortunately at a cost but as the old saying goes “That’s boating”. She was put back in the water this morning, a quick blast outside the Sugar Factory only to have another thing crop up which needed her to be lifted out so back to the travel lift for a 20 min repair job. When we were relaunched I was tempted to flag the 12 knot speed limit and drop the hammer and cane it down the harbour at 34 knots but to many of those silly boats with sheets were taking everywhere so was just a leisurely spin back to the Marina, will leave it for next weekend.

    boat also known as " hole in water that money disappears down." can hardly wait for my next one wont be anywhere near the size of your one but it will keep the bank account at near nil balance also.

    320 hp Cummins mercruiser diesels.
    Fuels the cheapest part of the exercise.
    Had a couple of small water leaks where the starboard stern drive bolts thru the transom so she had to come out of the water and have the starboard engine and stern drive removed to repair, while that was going on they replaced the starboard exhaust (holed) and a few other maintenance issues, so all good to go for another few years.
    I’ve only put 350 hours on her over 10 years, don’t really have the time nowadays to really put her to use so will probably sell her in the next couple of months.
    Basically you have to keep using them, mine sits on a marina berth and gets used maybe 8 times a year.
