Hi Hartley. When I brought the boat I new the fuel tank had to be replaced and the engine had a blown head gasket. So I did a deal with the PO where some of the purchase price was held in a trust account and we shared the cost of the engine repair and fuel tank replacement. However once the engine was out we worked out the engine was not worth repairing (was sea water cooled and the PO had not replaced the anodes in 5 years - they are suppose to be inspected / replaced annually). Therefore I had to go with a new engine. I went with another 20HP Yanmar again a 3YM20.

The prop shaft was not planned, however it was not a large cost.

Yep, the weather been pretty good. Apart from the occassional cyclone headinbg our way

Having fun with the bigger boat?

I do miss the other boat sometimes, but then I think of the excitement of trailering and rigging up on stinkpot-laden boatramps and then I don't miss her any more.

I know exactly what you mean by a "small fortune"

When I brought Amadeus the PO thru in some boxes containing various manuals, brochures, etc and included in one file was a spreadsheet showing what he spent during the first haulout. $28k which included a total 2 pack spray paint top & bottom, osmosis strip, mast removal & 2 pack paint, ceiling and windows rebuild, etc, etc.

Made me a bit happier about the small fortune I had just spent .

How to make a small fortune ? Start with a large one and buy a timber boat.

Yesh, I know, old joke and corny with it.

We still on for Saturday Cameron ? Weather forecast is a bit dodgey but fingers crossed. Raven is looking a tadge naked at the moment. Dodger and bimini taken off for remaking and won't be back till next week.

I resemble that remark.

Yep, still on for Saturday. Sorry about the late reply - I've been kinda busy getting ready for the Sydney trip and am typing this in the airport lounge since our work internet has gone down.

There's a big high coming across, so hopefully it'll be a nice day. We are looking forward to seeing you both whichever way it happens. Mrs H has cooked up some of her lemon slice again..

Give you a call tomorrow - after I wake up.

Ilenart, must of missed this thread last year, she looks like a great boat.

I am hearing on the small fortune. We are 3 weeks in with our Martzcraft and 5k has disappeared without even thinking about it!

Its a real shame we are all separated by so much real estate. I'm not much of a one for raft ups (not so much curmudgeonly and misanthropic ) but it would be good to have an Oz SailNet hookup.
