Great to hear. I have had mine for about 3-4 months and am yet to do any racing
. Though I bought her with twilight's in mind. Have done a few booze cruises in assorted weather
and she performed admirably.
Mine has a SW cooled Bukh
. The Salt water cooling
actually put me off for a while. However, having spoken to a couple of good mechanics they are quite impressed with the motor
for its age. Its a matter of good flushing
occasionally and good servicing of course.
I have stepped up from RL24s RL28 and and Adams
8. So the space is great. I dont expect her to have the "go" of the Adams
or the RL24, but what I do get a boat with headroom
for me and space in general.
The previous owner was a lovely, older guy who really looked after her and added some nice things like a boom bag, new anchor winch
fridge on mine is working nicely. I am not sure if its original, but all the Compressors/hoses/stuff is in the lazerette, up high and out of the way of fenders etc. Even turned once off it seems to be keeping beer
cold for nearly 24 hours. (priority number one sorted lol)
I am yet to sort out the gas stove which isnt working. Probably just out of gas. And I need to remove the old Stainless water tanks
. She has two bladders for water and the old tanks
are sitting under the settees wasting space. I just have to figure the cleanest way to get them out. Its not going to be a fun job either way I fear.
Mine is on Lake MacQuarie NSW.
