Polyester sailingboat type Daimio
700, built in 1975 (France). I procured her in
1989, ater she served many years as a holiday
ship in Friesland for KLM's sailingclub Watersport Vereniging
The boat needed refurbishing and repairs and was
equipped with a Mercury 7.5 pk outboard engine.
The latter is improvising, especially when you
have high waves.
For me, the old Daimio
could last many years more. In such a case, a new
diesel engine is an good investment. It improves
the seaworthiness and up-front costs will be
earned back with lower maintenance costs. No fuzz
with an old engine, but very relaxed sailing for
many years more.
is'nt that wat we all want ?
