Our Fletcher speedboat, that arrived with us in a very sorry state after spending the last few years under cover in a back garden, has had some special attention this week.
“We needed to remove the fuel tank to take a closer look at the engine,” explains Craig. Upon closer inspection, a thorough clean and some specialist boat advice it was decided that neither engine would be used in the restoration.
“We had two Evinrude 25HP engines, but neither were in good shape,” says Craig, “so we made the decision to up the power to a 90HP Mercury engine, which should mean it’ll go a heck of a lot faster.”
The team here were all hoping to see this beauty back out on the local waters this summer, but you can’t rush restorations! Therefore, a more intricate engine replacement will now take place to get this little speedster back on the waves.
