Tullio Abbate

Hi folks,

Still looking for a boat - this one has been on Ebay a few times and hasn't sold. As it's on surface drives I thought about swapping the Vulcano V8's for Seateks or something similar.

So my questions are - what are the Vulcanos worth - scrap value?

Does anyone have any decent diesels that would fit this thing?

As far as I can tell it's a 36 Offshore - does anyone know anything about these hulls?

if you look at the u tube footage then click on other vids from this user it shows one engine removed and sounding crap-might be wrong?

Yes I saw that, but if it sounds bad it's useful to bargain down on the price! Would probably swap them out for diesels anyway.

The Holden Ute (pickup) is going on Friday so I'm going to need a new car as well! Anyone know of good value 4X4's? Would like a Toureg or a Cayenne 3 years oldish?

With your skills and facilities why donít you build yourself the perfect boat? A nice long slender stepped hull designed for twin diesels. Do you have a spec or a requirement in mind?

Naturally I would like the impossible - something I could use at the weekend to take the wife and the dog to the Scillies or Channel Islands, and do Cowes Torquay and Round Britain in as well!

Sometimes it's easier, quicker and cheaper to buy something and sort it out!

Cheap Cayenne

Hi Cookee

My old man has a Cayenne S that he is looking at selling.

It would be cheap as chips (sub 10K) but just a reflection of the mileage (wrong side of 100k).

Let me know if this is the kind of thing you are interested in and ill get some more details.

Al

Thanks - I was thinking of spending a bit more than that - what age is it?

In my experience it is more productive to start with something new and fresh rather than repairing old crap.
You have PM.

You have a point and you'll have a PM in a minute!

Docta - I think I'll pass on that - just sold a 2003 and want something a bit newer if I can!

Over Guinness and red wine last night (great combination by the way!) we decided that a different approach may be better, I am now looking for a pair of diesel engines and surface drives - the more horsepower the better!

So what would they take (assuming they are ASD6's)?

Don't get technical with me Cookee ! From what I recall in the deep and dusty past they are really only good for petrol motors. I am sure that if you Google Twin Disc and find the Arneson site it will give you all the specs.
Look I have even done it for you: http://www.twindiscpropulsion.com/uk/ASDRange.htm

Tulli Abbate

Thinking back in 1987 I raced in the European Champioship against Tullio Abbate, he had oneof his monos of about 42 of so feet called something like "Grunland Cheese".
It was green and white and had a pair of Issotta V6 diesel motors in on Arneson ASD 8s with drop boxes. It was pretty unremarkable boat, did what it said on the tin. Never won anything but was always running, so much so in fact that coming back in from one race they couldn't switch off the engines and mounted the pontoon dock which then emi sank and stranded the boat like a beached whale on top ! It had to then be craned off. In fairness the Issottas always had that problem the engine stop solenoid was mounted in the middle of the V to activate the diesel rack and often failed as it got wet/ connections vibrated off; we had a manual morse cable as a backup as we had been caught by it ...

Correct, but if Cookee continues to drive like a girl he'd be ok

And they're cheap(ish)
