new to boating
Hi all, my name is Tony and I am a driving instructor in Cumbria. I have been into cars and bikes for 30 years and have now decided to give boating a chance.
I have recently bought a project, a 1979 Fletcher Arrow 17 fitted with an Evinrude 115. I have totally gutted the interior and started again, what a mess 30 years of different people fiddling has done. The exterior is full of dings and knocks which I will eventually re gel it.
I have recently just got the motor running sweet, as the previous owner seemed to be using untrained children as the mechanic. ie, water pump was fitted wrong, fuel pump was fitted wrong, wiring was like spaghetti.
hopefully I don't need to ask too many questions on here. I will be using it for fishing, occasionally skiing and pottering around the lakes.
