  3. How very true. My first boat was a hand start lister lr2 and I never changed the oil in 5 years as it worked on a total loss system so just topped up most days lol. My last few boats have been japanese and I don't check the level between changes as it doesn't move.
  4. I am not surprised at the quote its a shitty job and engine needs taking out which needs some lifting gear and messing about. Cash in hand bodges job for 500 quid?

  9. Very wise words. Something many people dont think about when first boat buying!! Whilst this boat is tiny at only 68feet there is actualy 18 inches more liveable useabale space than my 70 footer had.
  10. There are some fifty and some sixty footers in there. If you intend living aboard ten feet extra cabin space is a HUGE difference.

  12. My current sewer tube with a similar size engine has two, one on each swim I havnt a clue how many any of my other boats had but ive never had a boat overheat ( YET )
  13. What I meant was if it doesn't overheat in an hour then it's not going to over heat. Just trying it for ten minutes isn't long enough.
  14. 30 hp is tons of power for a 45 footer. As you say gain some experience first and ensure the engine is reliable and doesn't overheat if used at full belt for an hour or so then you know it will be fine. Change fuel filters and any charging or water pump belts.
