  1. We thought about it prior to CYPRUS and immediately agreed it’s not the right boat for us it’s not really a cabin boat as the conversion. Kn my opinion. Is shyte and it is not financially viable to change or reconvert to working trim
  2. As we’re setting off for Brinklow soon ( the long way round) I really do need to attend to CYPRUS’s gearbox as it doesn’t seem to hold back with any efficiency now I do know that David put a really good crowther prop on so I presume it’s down to gearbox adjustment I have been told by a couple of reliable sources it’s just a matter of taking the control rod off the box and adjusting it forwards or backwards a quarter of a turn to see how it is has anyone actually done this or am I walking into a minefield Happy to get hands dirty BUT have never touched one of these boxes……all advice/ info gratefully appreciated Chris
