I have very little history on the boat. I have owned her for the last 3 years. Previous owner approximately 5 years. Since I have owned her I have upgraded the Radio, fitted the compass and renewed all the light with LED. Also replaced the fuel tank with new Yamaha one. Ensured Engine was serviced and running well as it should. Originally I was going to launch and retrieve but found that not suitable because I go solo most of the time. Hence it has been kept afloat and of course Anti Fouled. The hull was unpainted when I bought her. Circumstances have changed and I can no longer use the boat as I would hope to.
