Good to see you're back. Aren't old marine diesels great? On the rare occasions they won't start,even after months of neglect, check compression, air and fuel. 9 times out of 10 you'll find the problem is something incredibly simple like a dirty filter. On modern engines it'll be the electronics and you'll have to spend a fortune on a new microdoofa.

Indeedy. Its the one thing on this boat that always behaved impeccably. It even sounds nicer than a modern diesel, despite the grey sludge that passes for engine oil!

I have a 56ft Fifie (18'6') Beam called Rival 2. they're getting to be a bit of a rarity. she's getting a bit tatty at the moment but i love her.
