New 570 owner

Post by Tervueren » Sun Apr 22, 2018 11:06 am

Hi all, I've just moved near to Tenby from down south by Gatwick, i'm not new to boating having owned larger boats (30ft) in the 1980s yes I'm an old sod lol but I am new to small boats, I'll let you know serial number when I've removed enough paint from it to read, it has a 75hp Yamaha two stroke, elderly but clearly well maintained so before rushing to replace it with a more modern four stroke I'll see how horrendous the fuel economy is first, a number of important jobs to do before using it one of which is a leak from the roof hatch, any pointers to suppliers of seals would be handy.
Regards
John

Welcome to the fun monster that is the 570!

I haven't tried this on my Houdini Hatch but Littleport Boat Haven sell a seal:

Shetland Boats used to have a spare parts list, can't find it online now but you could give them a call.

Thanks for the info it will come in handy unfortunately I've found a bigger problem to sort first, the table pedestal base socket had completely corroded out, nothing left but a soggy pile of muck, got to presume that at the very least the hull in this section must be completely waterlogged !!!
