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.

I though all the petrol versions had adjustable tabs. Tabs should be hydraulic (uses ATF fluid) with the pump unit being tucked away on the port side of the transom (A plastic container/pump unit) .. with pair of switches on the dash ? Twin turbo 2.4L diesels from Lancing Marine were fitted 2004. Th...

If you have hydraulic power tilt, then yes these are designed to adjust trim. If you try this with the electric lift on the 280 leg it will probably tear the little lift motor right off its mounting. Trim tabs will help with planing attitude, but beware .. these produce a lot of drag and will slow y...

Like most of these "boaty things" .. they all need to be used , so I concur that occasional lift and lowering of legs is a good procedure. However do not be tempted to engage power with a leg in lifted position. The electric lift motor works through a small worm drive and is not designed t...

Interesting ... when I re-engined Lancing said that fitting of strainers was not recommended. I have heard of people using caustic soda .. but have no experience myself .. I think I personally would be inclined to immerse in white vinegar for 24 hours .. a cleaning/de-limescale method that I find ve...

I'm afraid I dont match your criteria as I have Mirage with Lancing Ford turbos. However as I doubt you have any raw water strainers fitted I am wondering if you have a pile of crud that has forced its way through the impellers and is piled up in front of your heat exchanger tubes. I regularly remov...
