Boat Checklist


We have added this excel spreadsheet (Checklist) for those of you who may be thinking about buying a boat. It has 70+ items that we would recommend that you check prior to having a survey carried out. It is not a definitive list but it will give you something to work from. There are some items that may not be related to your boat so dont worry if they are not just work through the list putting any comments or or photo numbers against the item if you want to check them out later or get further advice.  

Simply click on the XLS button and the file will be saved to your downloads file.  

We hope this is of use to you and will save you time and money. If it has you can always buy us a beer by clicking the red button! 

Volvo Penta parts list alternative suppliers.

We have compiled a list of alternative parts suppliers including the part numbers and links to the places you can buy them. These parts are either original manufactures parts or the same part with a different label or packing. They are not cheap pattern parts! The suppliers are businesses that we have used over the years and have had no issues with. Before you order any part you should always check the part number and satisfy yourself that this is the right part for you. 

Many of these are interchangeable across a number of engines so the part may not just fit one engine.  If you save yourself a few £, $, €, then we are happy! But remember to credit us, like share and reference our videos and you could always buy us a beer! 

Finally, we ask that if you find a cheaper supplier and your happy with the quality than you add the details to the spreadsheet and send it  to us so that we can upload it here for everyone's benefit. Send it to:
