Fat Girl Refit

After blowing one of my inboard Volvo diesel engines on the 1st of August it was decided that it was time for Fat Girl to have a complete refit.

We chucked out the inboards and with some modifications Fat Girl now sports a pair of Yamaha F250 Out Board Engines.

The whole boat has also been completely rewired and all the plumbing has also been redone, toilet, deck wash, fresh water and live well.

We also spruced her up externally and have redone the deck and the entire interior.

The GPS and Fish Finder is to be replaced with the all new Furuno 12" NavNet TZ2 Touch complete with a commercial class transducer. The system will come with the Max Sea weather overlays.
This will be the first Furuno TZ2 unit in Durban. I am awaiting this unit to arrive next month for fitment and am rather excited.

She went back in the water this weekend after 31 days of hard work and will be fully operational sometime this week.
