Hello everyone....my first post here...and about the Danish Coronet boats.
I have the chance to get a 1965 Coronet 7 metre cabin
and sort of fly bridge, but I cannot get more info about it yet and its a bit of a haul to go and see it if its not what its supposed to be....
Its going to be a light restoration
job, but has no motor
or drive at all, and after almost fifty years I can't expect it to be original, but the photos look ok. and has a recente inspection
.it has a rear quarter deck
which I can't see on any Coronet pics I have found, has a slight barrel back curve to the transom, and three seperate windows each side on the cabin
and a two pane split windscreen.
One question, and which affects the purchase
, is I can't stretch to an inboard -outdrive yet, so thought of blanking the transom and fitting an outboard
Whats the lowest hp I can get away with...for sheltered coast and inland cruising. I have a newish 100hrs 40 hp fourstroke yam on the other runabout a five metre GRP fifties replica, and it maxes that at about 30knots at 5000 rpm
... would it be too underpowered d'you think?
at a nominal seven metres, is it going to be a 21ft or 24 ft, and as 7m is actually 22.75 ft see my problem.
Wheres the ID plate likely to be ?
Look forward to hearing any opinions
