  1. Breakdown

    Hi Mikey, Thanks for the input, luckily my engine turned off with the key !!! An hour later it was all working ok, think it is " fly by wire " controls, the only cable comes from the control lever in cabin to the electronic control box under the seats. Hopefully engineer is there tomorrow as he said he would from our conversation earlier..........very wary of going out before someone has looked at boat. Throttle position sensor has been mentioned. Mick

    A very big thank you to Allan G, Dave L. and Dave S for coming to my rescue today. Coming into the quay in the 6 knot limit Marichelle suddenly surged to full power, I dropped her out of gear but engine still running at high speed, luckily it did turn off with key! Dave S called Allan who came back and kindly towed us back to Cobbs, engine started and was running correctly, but got her towed to pontoon in case the same thing happened again! Any ideas chaps, gonna get vodia machine plugged in anyway but just wondered if anyone has heard of this problem before ? Thanks again boys !!!

    That,s my theory Dave, seems to be an intermittent problem as was our last trip where she lost power twice and then no problem after that. Strange really as the boat was running fine, then a little blip and then big problem! Spoke to a guy this morning who is going to get there sometime this week and plug his machine in and access any fault codes which should point towards the problem............hopefully !!! Thanks Kev for sending me his number.

    Marichelle went back in today , took her for a run up to Brownsea and back............what a difference a slime free bottom makes !!! But, watch out for the old bridge as there was no warning sign either side of bridge with the air draft...........not good!!!
