Hi all I am new to the community, I have just bought a seafinn 411 looking forward to finding out how she handles under sail. Trouble is I am waiting for the broker to fix the engine, when he started the engine it covered the boat in grey/blue smoke and pumped sea water into the engine bay via the heat exchange unit, this may be because she has been on the hard for two years? but it is frustrating waiting to take her out in the Solent for the first time, almost like my grandson waiting for Christmas Day. Also I have my westerly conway up for sale, she one of three rare aft cockpit versions if any one is interested "smoke free" .
