  8. Trim Tabs - Orkney Pilothouse 20

    Have you thought about electric trim tabs so much easier to fit.

  10. Looking at a new boat

    I also meant to say to get the retracter kit so you can lift the trim tabs level when launching . Any problems give us a shout. Mick.

    Its also a lot more money.
  12. Looking at a new boat

    The gross weight will mean you need a braked trailer for this set-up. bear in mind the Honda is a heavy engine. Even with the 2 stroke on ours it was over the unbracked limit. We used to tow ours with a Mondeo 2.0 diesel no problem.

  14. Looking at a new boat

    Hi Mike, really good looking boat, what year is the boat. our boat had a 50hp 2 stroke and it went ok,later upgraded to a 70 hp 4 stroke wanted a 60hp but was none in UK. Fitted self leveling trim tabs and it made a big improvement. only a small thing but check transom bung is not split . as Coddy says check trailer brakes and bearings,we fitted bearing savers and a brake flushing kit. The Elite is a good boat and is easy to launch and retrieve. Have a look on Coddys site he does a good review. any questions just let me know. Mick.
  15. Engine change

    Must admit I have always had boats small enough to run outboards,never had a inboard. I do seem to see a lot of boats with legs in bits being repaired,not so with an outboard. also to remove outboard is 4 bolts. I would agree with Mike Fox that it would be less hassle to change boats, you should have no problem selling yours as a lot of people are going over to outboards.
