she was the last boat to be fitted with the d-dec engines,we had many problems with them for months,but they were ironed out.my boat had a couple of cracked liners,hence down to 1 engine,I was looking forward to takeing her to the IOW,but took her to portishead so she could go by road to poole,she was due to go for her refit a week after the engine packed up.
