Our boat was re engined with a Ford diesel 20 years ago and has had lots of bits replaced, rechromed and repaired over the years. She certainly needs a good cut and polish as well as the rubbing strake revarnished and decks repainted.Window seals and sponges decks have been done over the last couple of years.
Whilst we have owned her for two weeks we have only been out for a one hour run so far but that was enjoyable and uneventful.
This is our third boat and our second on the Thames. Some years ago we had a Birchwood 25 on the river and then a Fairline Corniche on the Solent. The Freeman is very different to both and should suit our requirements for messing about on the river perfectly.
I will no doubt have lots of questions and this forum seems to be a friendly and helpful resource.
We're a friendly bunch really...ask away
