fairline weekender 21

Postby sharlatan » Wed Nov 14, 2012 7:00 pm

Hi there.
I'm new to boating and to restoration work. Ive bought a Fairline as mentioned in the subject body. Shes a bit of a dog but I recon some tlc will work wonders. Engine appears to be sound and the body appears to be in good nic. Ive noticed the fuel gauge/float/ sender unit isn't working. Is there anywhere I can get hold of manuals or find information to help me restore her?

Welcome to the relaxing world of boating!!!
You can pick up a fuel sender unit on eBay for I believe around £20.00. It's quite a simple job to see if you are getting a reading from the sender with a meter,if you do, then it's going to be the gauge, I got one again off eBay for my weekender for a tenner.
I have my weekender up for sale at the moment as I have bought a Carrera, both models are good craft.

Thanks for the welcome.
When I bought the boat I had no idea about the pitfalls of buying boats. so I still have a lot of cash to lay out on surveys and stuff I think. But Im in no hurry so can Take till ext season to get her sorted.

I too thought I had plenty of time and before I knew it I lost almost a whole season of boating.
It's amazing once you start working on one job, you seem to find others that need doing and nothing is straight forward on a boat. :D

I have found two serial numbers on the hull under the steering wheel.

ON 713360 and R.T. 3 45/100

Anyone know what these are?

OK winter was a killer and I got nothing done.

However I now know the meaning of the number on the boat its year and that the sender gauge is working but it looks like the sender unit needs to be reset(?)

The number is the original SSR from the Jersey register. Still no idea about the other one.
The boats a 1987 model.

So the question is.. How do i get the sender to reset/free off?

All assistance muchly appreciated :)

Ive decided to bite the bullet after months of people knowing someone. But nothing being done, Ive decided to pay the cash and put my boat into a proper boat yard to have the engine done.

Im dreading this with thoughts of about 125 quid an hour for labour.

Ill let you all know what the outcome is.

Im hoping my bill wont run to much more than a grand.
Then I can concentrate on the survey and finally get out to play this year.
