Engine & Fuel :
Mercury two stroke 0utboard petrol
Completely rebuilt 2007, The transom has
been strengthened to take the 75hp Mercury giving 25-30 mph .
Formally "Ducking and Driving"
Rani" is moored on the Medway in Kent. We have had a lot
of fun fishing in the Medway and Thames estuary and exploring our local inland
waterways to Tonbridge. A great way get the family to have fun and no TV or
computer games. I have coupled a 8 hp Honda to the main steering we use the
8hp when on the waterways (uses 2 l/h of petrol as to 20l/h for the 75 hp). "Rani"
is a very comfortable boat and handles rough water extremely well. I have
included some pics of her before and after as well as some of the transom
rebuild ( not a easy job), he has been painted with International Perfection
which gives a very good finish. I am very pleased with how she turned out and
will be taking her home ( advantage of having a trailer) in December just to
tidy up a few areas and finish fitting the freshwater tank and pump.
