Hi thomas, Not really but when we took it from the Drystack and put it in the garage Rob noticed that one of the spark plug leads was off and need replacing..... It did ran a bit rough when we flushed it and when we put the lead back on it sounded better...

We used "Gladys" a lot but lately were wondering why we could not get it over 22knots and now probably know why ?...We also do wonder if the ignition coil needs replacing but as this part if 190,- I rather wait till that is diagnosed as faulty... Did you ever looked at props and engine height for her ? ps... When your going out on your beast then let us know ... we (incl rob) are very keen to come along :-)

I'll have a chat to Mark, it was serviced then wasn't used till we took it out.

The next weekend I get when child is not working and the weather is ok I'll let you know, could collect you from the dry stack and nip over to Cowes for chips.
