Intersting

Last year some of the treads got a little interesting, but this year it all seems fine to me

This is the best forum (i dont get out much) i have seen, there is some good stuff on

1) I have done this so dont make the same mistake
2) Good general updates
3) Good advise

As a real example when we were buying a bigger boat, i got lots of advise. As we were looking for a scorpion about a year an a half ago there were plenty of boats , but i was not sure about the engines (many had Evinrudes on the back). We ended up with a boat with a 200 Fitch post all the modifiactions. Its all been great the engine runs like a steam train. However before we purchased we check the servicing and the Oil used, as rogue commented on the oil pump is very expensive on engines, so you us making sure it had the correct oil was important. We also check the fault codes (again advice from ribnet)

I think the forum had a part to play in us getting the correct boat
