Flibbertigibbet Posted October 15, 2015 Report Share Posted October 15, 2015 Hello, I'm new here, and have been reading up on this engine and Gardners in general. I am flirting with the, probably very bad, idea of buying a 60' narrowboat that has one fitted. From what I have found so far, I gather that although it's a great engine, parts are difficult to come by, servicing could be a nightmare, and it is probably/certainly overpowered for this type of boat. I think I would be buying an 'engine with a boat', as opposed to a 'boat with an engine'. Would this purchase be a folly, a liability, a very expensive hobby, or a good investment? I would be interested to hear any comments and ratings on my enthusiasm or stupidity. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
