New Member Saying Hello

Post by Davy » Fri Jun 05, 2015 11:50 pm

Hi Folks,

Just thought I would introduce myself, say hello and give you a bit of my Seagull story so far!

I inherited a boat and a Seagull Model 75 from my Grandfather a few years ago and have had a couple of fine summers pottering around on the sea in front of my house. The boat is a Cresent 42 which the Gull pushes along very nicely! I believe another forum member has the very same boat.

Anyhow... I decided it was time to clean up the engine a bit and started with the fuel tank (only because it was closest to me :) ). It turns out that the many layers of paint my grandfather had applied was about the only thing holding the fuel in!! So the hunt began for another tank. To try and wrap this story up, I am now the proud owner of another two Seagulls :D
One is a Forty Plus MK2, belonged to the previous owners father, the gentleman said he couldn't remember it ever running - but after a few nights in the shed and a wee bit of a strip down it fired right up, amazing.
The other is something else altogether and I think I may have to leave that for the Help section of this forum.

Apologies for writing so much, I got a bit carried away!

Cheers for now,

Davy

Thanks Oyster, I will do. We will see what problems/questions present themselves once I get them both on the boat and out on the sea!
