Interesting that yours is 2001 ..some folk on this site keep saying the glue on PVC falls apart at 10 years..so its good to know yours is still on the go.

I also have another PVC boat that is around 15 years old and its still well glued together..but thought I was an exception to the 10 year rule
The boat is well taken care of. And almost never taken to rough waters! As far as I can tell everything is still glued in place fine.

Glad to hear that wise ..it could stop the panic selling of 9 year old PVC boats

I don't think your engine will have trouble running cos its a bit deeper either. Although my engine is lighter.. I am possibly heavier than you ? so my engine could run deeper as I sit at the back of the boat. Mine runs fine even with all my weight beside it.

I suspect ..but cant say for sure.. they upped the spec to a heavier engine when they banned the sale of lighter two strokes..cos the four strokes are obviously heavier.. but I doubt they changed construction of the boat.. I could be wrong though
