Just a quick introduction
Just purchased my first boat / rib last week, I'm looking to find the exact model of my boat but it's a Avon that I estimate to be around 15 years old. It is around <5m in length.
It's in need of a small amount of work but to my knowledge nothing major. The engine is only a few years old, a 60hp Mariner. Perfect in my opinion for getting me going and learning the water on
I'm quite a keen diy car mechanic, though I try and avoid these days! I've also got a good knowledge of playing with 12v electrical/electronics, carrying out lots of wiring upgrades and engine conversions in VW's
I'll be looking to do all the servicing myself where possible and really getting to know my way around a marine engine.
Great forum, I'm looking primarily to start with some help I.Ding the boat and picking through the rather grotty looking wiring and temperamental fuel gauge! I'm taking it out the water tomorrow all being well, then the fun can start
