Not quite sure what you mean by 'level of survey'.
It is customary to have a marine surveyor check out your intended purchase which will be an out of the water survey where he will concentrate mostly on the hull, but also look for other problems.

The charger should first deliver about 14.6 volts for a time (determined by the state of the batteries) and then drop to a maintenance charge of around 13.5V. If the voltage doesn't reach approx 14.6 then the batteries will not reach a full charge. If the charger delivers too high a voltage then the...

The difficulty with problems such as yours is that everyone has an idea ... all are valid (to a greater or lesser degree) and you have to try to make sense of them all. My limited experience suggests that with significant actual water ingress into the cylinder you are more likely to get a bent conne...

I have re-engined my Mirage from petrols to 2 x 145 HP diesels ands have 100 kgs of ballast in the bow to counteract. Also need to keep the bow fresh water tank full.

Would certainly expect you to need negative trim to get up on the plane. If you have too much positive then you are just holding the nose up and will never get to plane. So negative to start and then adjust as you get going according to the attitude that gives you the best ride.

This is an unusual configuration and will be very heavy, making the boat low in the water at stern. Make sure that there is no water ingress through the sterndrives, which may well be deeper in the water than they were designed to be. Ensure there is room at the front of the engines to do the essent...

Interesting. I thought only petrols had original trim tabs. I guess in the build stage you could specify anything you liked !!. I have tabs because of the original petrol engines. I also have the bunk beds. In fact the original Mark 2 sales brochure featured a boat called AINE. Built in 1981 it was ...

1984 makes it Mk2.

Sales people often make up the build date. Unless you have original purchaser documentation, the only way to be sure is to note the build number on the plate on the dashboard, call Fairline themselves and ask them. They will tell you to the month when it was completed.

Mark 1 or 2 ?

you may find that someone has been making their 'own customisations' ... Sadly its very common, and it can take a lot of effort to try to put it back as it was. It never ceases to amaze me how willing people are to drill a big hole, or wire up some naff accessory.
