First of all let me introduce myself:
I am René - 46 yr old father of 3 kids from the Netherlands - like watersports since I was 13 yrs old ( windsurfing / boating ) and this is my second SIB after a polyester fishing boat.
The boat is a Honwave T35 2014 and the engine is a 2006 2-stroke Mercury 20M.
I bought the boat at our local dealer because he had the best price at this moment. The engine is a 2006 build and sold in 2008. The previous owner only used it for about 30hrs and never did any maintenance on the engine. So first of all I called the dealer to do a check on the engine.
He suggested to do some maintenence ( impeller / oil / spark plugs ). He said that the engine was in a pristine state, but I had to clean it because it was a bit dirty....
Well some pics of the engine and boat
p.s. sorry for the bad English
Next year we will be at Lake Annecy to play with the boat a bit. The kids like to "kneeboard" or maybe try to waterski if the engine is powerful enough. We hope it will be, but the kids weigh about 50-60kg.
Hope you like the boat and engine - need to buy some things to complete it all.
