Life and living with small SportsBoats
James was searching the Internet and came across this picture of Gibbs Marine taken on the 12th June 2010. The sales record shows our boat was sold new from Gibbs Marine on the 20th June 2010 (i.e. about a week later). On the right hand side of this picture taken by photographer Mark Baker is a Regal 2250 on a trailer, circumstances suggest it is the boat we now own when it was on sales display!. We also belief based on the paperwork trail that it was probably a demonstrator model prior to this and some pictures we have seen of the first London boat show at the Excel show a similar boat on display.
So the general winter maintenance is under way.
I have never liked leaving the props on the boat over the winter as they are quite valuable. Therefore we always take them off and give them a clean. This year its the Bravo III Duo-props on the new Regal.
As you can see, they have picked up some general dirt and surface deposits over the year in the water.
