Patchy the Foreman!!!

Well the cold and winter has hit...... And the workshop is full again. We have had our hands full with a Yamaha F225 with a power-down issue, finally tracked to a re-occuring fuel starvation problem and poorly running fuel injectors. There was quite a few nights of Mark coming home with a wonderful Eau de Fuel about him!!! Now we are onto a poorly Mercury Verado 200hp who is a much needed commercial boat, we are on the countdown to get that sorted and back on the water. And on of our favourite boats from a very local and reputatble boat builder, the Stinger RIB from MRL Marine (, is back in for pre-sale specification build, you know the score - a fantastic boat to start with, and now being spec'd to the new owners wishes. It is going to be even more of a corker when it is finished. And its been the usual round of engine servicing and winterising for the Solent's Honda, Mercury, Suzuki and Yamaha outboards - the perfect recipe to protect them from the predicted awful winter on its way.
Patchy, the resident Spaniel Foreman, has been taking his job very seriously - perusing all work carried out my Mark and Craig, issuing his daily works list... And then retiring to the warm, for him to re-heat his coat against the heater....... Why not check out our recent photos of Patch and all of our workshop boats at our Facebook page -
Thats all folks, and remember, keeeeeeeeeeeeeep boating!!
