So its time to do up the tender, strip it back, and repaint......
Till the boat is ready again........

Did a trip round the coast, engine changed sound, thought it was exhaust gasket , oil etc was ok no showing of anything else, still had power.
Changed the manifold gasket, blowing from head, till it is stripped down?, hope its only a gasket and not a crack.
Joy of boating eh......Got the boat year and half ago, belonged to a guy who owns a boatyard and service shop in Dover, registered in his name said it was serviced and good, found a few things after 6 months, trouble is, its a nice boat and great fun. Just want it sorted now.
Cheers Marty.
