The motors need to be locked over to stbd when near full tilt otherwise they do get a bit tight. Ideally the hose would enter the deck a bit further forward but wasn't possible. Not a major issue tho.

Fantastic news! Finished off the rigging and started both engines and they ran sweet!

Bit of a relief after buying them on ebay from USA 8 months ago!

Sea trials should begin next weekend or the weekend after

Hopefully the weather will improve slightly, it's gusting 60 knots here at the mo

Looking forward to that. Congrats on a nice job. All you need now is to move to a decent climate so you can use it.
Cheers. T.

Big day tomorrow!

Was going to spend the rest of this weekend giving the whole boat a really good clean ready for next week but the weather down here is so stunning at the mo I'm going to chuck her in tommorrow morning

Anyone else about just in case I need a tow back in?
