Thanks Lads
You might notice the SX 2 in white and the N in chrome to make a name distinction so it depends on the angle as to wether the authorities will allow it  Smiley Lips Sealed

Neil, you've oft corrected my English usage in my early days on this forum.

I ink you'll find that "whether" is correct spelling.

"Whether the wether will cope with the weather, or whether the wether will be fine"

Unlike "she sews, I sow, be both s.w"

Sorry.

I 'Ink you are correct . My apologies !
Now I  don't know if it came from my years with Sheep and Wool , whether I was under the weather or whether it was a typo like ink. Grin

Bloody iPads - dropping the "th" on "ink". Erk.

So , when's the launch? Sx2 is looking stupendous (you've obviously used good quality house pain on her!), and I'm just waiting in anticipation of a video link of twins firing up, and off she goes....and then some piccies of her being used in "relaxation mode" - ie boat camping/ fishing etc.

Whilst is might surprise you, I'm actually quite serious. I think she's a very beautiful boat, and worthy of all this.

I was doing some internet foraging tonight, and decided that my "ultimate boat" is a Dorsett Catalina - I note that Yoechemin has one, along with an old Evinrude, and has been quiet of late, so I have tried to wake him up.

I have the advantage of desk top keyboard so have no excuses .

I know you're serious A and appreciate my work . You will be the first (I promise ) to get 'on water ' photos.

Mercman is planning to help launch soon on a weekday as setting up on a weekend would be horrendous .
Trouble with weekdays is getting assistance , 42 year old twin sons for example . Had daughter's BF lined up when the latest pics were taking but they broke up the night before  Shocked

I've mentioned on the Board before that SX 2 looks most like the Catalina . Four feet longer though .


Being timber and built down the road in 1961 I suspect she is American design of the late fifties as they were transitioning to fibreglass .The time lag. Hence SX 2 having glass hand laid below the waterline .

Would be good to hear from Yoechemin .

Kind regards

Neil

At last with the valued assistance of Guy  ,my wife and daughter we were able to launch SX2 this morning on the high tide and in an extremely busy area normally , early Monday was beautiful .
Anything was anticipated but fears were allayed !
Looks good ran well  Smiley
To all ,so many thanks for following her history.

Cheers
Neil

Fantastic. A project afloat ( one that I didn't foresee happening, but she's a really beautiful boat - great paint job too).

Thinking back on my first 4WD, and presuming the anxiety you will have had with launch and retrieve, I hope you put a big scratch up the side of SX2 .....it will make the next launch and retrieve easier, and you'll enjoy her more....as my "second"  4WD trip was so much easier after I dinged it on a tree on the first trip.

Hi Neil,,
Here is a rough youtube video on how to lift your idle speed. Don't bother yanking on the spark advance lever, like this joker did. Simply turn the screw until a more suitable idle speed is reached. Perhaps wire up tacho's first, or do it by ear, it's up to you.
As a suggestion, you might want to try running on 98 RON fuel before to touch anything. The fuels that were around when you last boated with those motors was a higher octane rating... we are all lead to believe these days.
