    To Survey Or Not

    Well I'm on my third boat and agree totally with what you are saying MM, I've always gone into any potential purchase with eyes wide open and a huge dose of common sense and always had a good look over what I'm buying before money changes hands. But it's all down to personal preference and knowledge of what you are looking at. Plus I am in the fortunate position of being able to fix most problems that could crop up from engine rebuild or replacement to structural stuff. But then what works for me may not work for everyone!

    I've just worked out that amount of fuel would keep me cruising for over 5 yrs given my average yearly usage

  10. Hi all, if anyone knows of one I'm in the market for a hydraulic steering pump/hub, I've got a source for a ram and suitable pipes but sourcing a pump at a reasonable price is proving very difficult second hand is good as a rebuild is no problem, thanks all

    I am not one for frequent or long posts as I prefer to loiter and read the posts and opinions of those who are generally much more accomplished at putting their thoughts into the written word, for the first time I would like to say that I heartily agree with all the above sentiments and would like to say to everyone - have a happy and healthy Christmas , and a great new year

    Hi socrates, loving the write up! Ignore the armchair admirals I know exactly how you feel Rosalind is over the other side of the marina from you and I have had to replace almost all the interior, cabin and sliding roof sides on a tight budget, and still more to go Just have to say though that I have always loved the ripple craft style , they have a look and class all their own, I'm not envious at all ! Much lol
