has responded to my inquiry about a Vancouver
, BC-based 1990 Catalina
42's provenance and engine
hours with the following:
came from Clearwater, Florida
when the current
owner bought it. He believes it was a single
at that point. The hour meter in the tach quit and a Hobbs meter was installed,... which I didn’t see. He will get me the hours."
1. What does this mean? I know what a tachometer does but I'm not nearly expert enough to understand why it would house the hour meter, and I don't know what a Hobbs meter is.
2. The boat's got that charter-friendly salon
layout from my last post
. Is the fact that it "came from" Florida
a red flag?
Sorry for the lack of Steely Dan references
in this post. I've been listening to a lot of Herbie Hancock lately.
