Cleaning fuel tanks is really hard as they are fitted with baffles and even if you have inspection access you cant usually get behind the baffles to clean them. Petrol tanks on boats are inclined to develop some unpleasant 'waxy' deposit over the years unless the fuel is constantly being used and re...

I would say that 15 x 17 props were those fitted to original petrol engines and you wont get much out of one of those until you get 5,000 rpm. A diesel engine of this power would swing a 16 x 21 without any problem and this would deliver much more thrust. you might even try 16 x 23 (the largest that...

Here's an afterthought ... if you don't need the cruising range have the stainless steel tank converted into part fuel - part black water. Same size, and same total weight. You could do an 80/20 split ..... a 20 gall holding talk would last two people .. what 4 days .... ? Although I am not sure abo...

Understood. I'd be very surprised if you can get one of those off the shelf. But do try Fairline - you may be lucky, otherwise I would approach a stainless steel fabricator and discuss your needs. You will of course need to be able to tell them exactly what you want (perhaps photos and measurements ...

I installed a 20 gallon Tek Tank in the starboard engine bay 'cheek', that is - adjacent to the starboard engine. I cant actually remember cost but I don't believe it was excessive. Bit of white pipe from ASAP Supplies and a few fittings from Lee Sanitation. The main cost was the tank. Evacuation of...

I shouldnt worry too much about the make of the existing charger - so long as it is working well!! I have no experience of generators, other than the noise of them running can be a bit of a nuisance to other boaters ........ I would think just about any genny would run your fridge and charger ... bu...

I suggest that a check be made with BSS people at Watford before anyone fits a petrol heater to a boat that will require BSS approval for inland waterways.

If your mirage is petrol you will need to be able to fill the fuel tank from
outside the boat to comply with boat safety regs

I believe when you depress and hold down the button it connects the batteries to enable a battery in poor charge state to be 'helped' by the other battery. Once engine has started you release the button.

sounds like CREAM Fairline only ever used one cream in their range which you can buy from them. Unfortunately gel coat is considered highly dangerous substance and has to be delivered by a special (and expensive ) courier. I went to Oundle myself to pick up my cream gel coat. Perfect match with my c...

Answers may vary according to the outdrives you have..... Control cables usually pass down an outer tube before they go through the transom. The tube is down beside your engine and is full of water and extends above the outside water level. So it is not 'held as such. The outer cable is held in posi...

Might you just take the battery to a battery shop and say -

I can tell you that Fairline sold some moulds to a Canadian company who made boats. I have seen picture of a a Mirage with a fly bridge that was one of their creations. I don't know what other models they made. As I recall they did all this all very independently and Fairline UK had no information a...
