If you are getting Yellow Penguin to service and fix your Verado LU, why not get your fuel from that Marina. Brand new fuel set up, way cheaper than the other nearby marina and cleaner than the "not land based" source. Just a thought as not many know about it if they don't keep their boat there

Thanks Ocsar

Although we use Yellow Penguin, we have had some very bad experiences with the owner of the marina and so stay well away, such that we have our services done at other marinas.

Understood. I keep my boat there and have done for many years. (Have also used Cobbs, Lilliput Yacht Satation and Salterns) I have had the occasional issue but usually sorted out amicably. Sorry to hear that you have had a bad experience, I did read your pressure washing post.
When I kept a Sunseeker (Portofino 31) there the pressure washing just about took to anti-fouling off as well as a years growth so you may have been unlucky.

I think the fuel is currently 20-25p a litre less than the other place so may be worth trying again for that sort of saving.

I also see from an earlier post that you are well aware of the Verado Owners Club. Drives Paul and Luke up the wall but the info has been really useful in getting my GPS hooked up, fixing minor problems and avoiding others through preventative maintanance.

I like the sound of your trips to the Folly, clipper start, etc so I will keep a lookout.

See you out there!
