    Anyone on the Llangollen

    Im off , I've never met so many miserable, moaning people ever, its my local canal but im relocating back to the Lancaster, the hire boaters are ace , the liveaboards are something else, not a day went by without somebody moaning about how fast I was travelling (im in no rush I went everywhere at tickover) mooring too close, music too loud (I only play music on my phone) lights too bright, travelling at night , night light keeping you awake (wtf it's a 5 w blue light) , have people got nothing better to do than moan about everything , I'm bored with it , glad I'm away from there...
  2. If you want a broads cruiser then the broads boat yards are where you should look first http://www.wayfordmarineservices.co.uk/product/bounty-solar-37-coming-soon/

    Cruiser style boat

    That looks remarkably clean ,guess it was out of the water for a clean and antifouling not so long ago, mine has been in two years now and has a nice covering of green grot, bet you can't wait to have it delivered now , should hopefully still have a few month's of nice cruising weather to enjoy it...

    Engine swap.

    What sort of budget do you have or is it flexible for the right boat? Do you mind doing a bit of work or paying for work to be done?? I'm sure W+T can do any work that may need doing if you found something that needed a bit of updating..

    Engine swap.

    http://www.bridgehousemarina.co.uk/boatmoreinfo.asp?BoatIDParam=8 That one is cheap but needs a tidy up inside.

    Engine swap.

    There are a few Nauticus 27s for sale at the moment with petrol engines, or keep an eye out for a 22 with outboard, are you dead set on a Nauticus as there is a lot of other outboard powered cruisers for sale that may be suitable for you ,an engine swap is neither a simple or cheap job so far better to buy one that already has a petrol inboard or outboard, don't be put off by it being miles away from you either as its not a huge expense to have it transported by road..

    outboard maintenance

    No experience with a Suzuki but my Honda 10hp is a simple job to service, engine oil ,plugs, fuel filter can be done in situ, I changed the impellor and gear oil yesterday by tilting the engine and pulling it up the slipway, putting on my wellies and then its easy enough to remove the leg, pretty sure it could be done if you found a shallow bit of canal, as Alan said leg needs to be vertical to get gear oil level correct so don't try doing it tilted, its a simple enough job requiring only basic tools so worth giving it a go yourself...

    Cruiser style boat

    My neighbour in the marina is currently removing the Perkins from his Nauticus 27 and fitting a homemade outboard bracket to mount a new Honda outboard he has purchased, he wants quiet cruising and the Perkins certainly doesn't give him that, when W+T came down to do some work on my boat the guy reckoned it would be done in 4 weeks ,that was about 10 weeks ago and it still has the Enfield poking out the back so a bit bigger job than he maybe first thought but still doable if you really wanted to...

    Boat transportation.

    Try Gary Lancaster from Preston Marine, he moved mine from Preston to Llangollen for £250 at short notice, he has trailers to fit most boats, plus he's based there anyway...
  14. Thanks rgreg kindly offered to help out but as he stated we have moved the boat down to Shropshire at the end of last year so its closer to home,,cheers anyway
