For anyone that read my other thread, I was looking at a Kingfisher 26, the deal fell through. Mostly because the owner would not allow us to keep the boat at the slip for anymore then 3 weeks, even though it was paid up until may.Also the owner knew nothing about the engine
yet he told us he would not recommend motoring the boat to our mooring
, that sounded fishy.
I have recently come across a 26 Westerly Centaur, with a 2008 Volvo penta diesel
. The boat just needs a good clean and cosmetic work. The boat is for sale
at £2,500...however the keel
might need to be re-bedded
The owner has stated that the keel bolts
have slight sign of water
seepage around the bolts, and a tightening of the bolts/ new sealant
might be enough to fix the issue for some time.
1. How does one tighten the bolts? Crane required?
2. If the keel
needed to be re-bedded how much would it cost (In the UK)
Thanks again for all your good advise.
