Engine & Fuel
Evinrude outboard petrol
It was love at first sight with Nicolle ll. My wife and
had been talking about getting a boat for some months and we were visiting
some friends who have a boat moored at Elton Boat Club and next door was
Nicolle with a for sale sign. After a tour of the boat and talking to the
delightful owners, we struck a deal. They were sadly having to give up boating
due to major health problems.
We have now been moored at Oundle Marina for 18 months
and during that time the steering, the electrics and rudder replaced. The boat
is in fair condition for its age and has a good engine, though two stroke is a
bit of a pain
The hood's now showing signs of wear and also suffered
badly with seagulls using it as a bombing target last winter and badly stained
it to almost white I now have a big plastic Owl on top of the deck to try and
deter them. So its patch and make do while we save for a new one. Any idea of
cost Trevor? The side panels are in good nick.
Apart from that some cosmetic tidying up need to be done
on bit of paint, but I have tidied up the interior first.
Our main waterway is the river Nene, which is not too
busy and very beautiful. With my wife not planning to retire for another year
we don't go too far . just weekend stuff. Great fun and we love it.
