Engine & Fuel
Honda four stroke petrol outboard
A nice tidy 20 that has just gone back
into the water on the Trent & Mersey after a good bottom clean and re-paint. An
interior re-fit is planned this winter.
Not a lot o work to be done other than to re-fit inside
to my taste. Moored at Kings Lock on the Trent and Mersey, Middlewich, we have
done some cruises together but , like most 20's I think, Hobbit likes to go
where she wants to go so am looking at fitting a Ruddersafe to stabilise the
directional flow at low speeds. Some of the Norman owners on the Forum have
given some good tips. Also I need to have the prop on the Honda 7.5 brought
back to shape after a particularly aggressive wheelie bin got in my way !
Fortunately I have a mate who re builds props. Most of the pics were taken
before I actually parted with any folding stuff, hence the "For Sale" stickers
De-fouled and re-painted in July2011 at least I don't
need to worry about that for a couple of seasons.
