Thanks for responding. Just in process of buying it. Was hoping I could familiarize myself with its manual. I may have questions soon!

Any idea what the life expectancy of the Medline is?
Mine looks great - know it’s 18 years old - is there a known life expectancy for this model that you know of?

Contact Pomerleau Les Bateaux,

Lťonard Fraser
piece@pomerlo.com

They can help you get a digital copy.

Zodiac still sells replacement tubes. Make sure the transom isn’t rotten. Other than that, the boat is solid fiberglass in the deck and hull.

Many thanks. Really helpful.
Transom rock-solid -the hull is quite thick on this thing!

Thanks for this! Request sent!
Question; unsuccessfully tried to remove centre console windshield for cleaning. Screws turn freely. Would you know whether or not I have to remove instrument panel to get it off?

Zodiac goes back and forth between screws and thrubolting on windshields.

Given the age, I would take off the panel anyways to inspect and clean electrical connections.

The #1 cause of vessel loss is electrical fires

Same problem!

Took your very good advice re checking electrically - found and fixed 5 issues with the trailer, then moved to the Medline - unfortunately when I attempted to remove instrument panel to access instrument wiring I had no luck. The same issue - screws turn, but donít come out.
Every one behaves identically, so this is a design feature.
Still havenít found a manual, so Iím stumped.
If anyone can point me in the right direction, Iíd appreciate it. I wrote Pomerleau 2x but no response yet.

Hi. Want to acquire a repair kit.
Realized I don’t know the composition of the hull tubes - are the tubes made of PVC or Hypalon?
