Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Polina Star, an Oyster 825...if you are interested
Funny you should mention Lewmar winches and B&G instruments. Both items are on our repair list right now L
However, on a previous boat we did have a lot of good luck with our Perkins Diesel – it even ran underwater (for a little while). We fondly remember hitting the starter with a hammer on days when the solenoid would stick.
Tally ho and all that!
With best regards,

Mark , Given your pessimistic view of English products you will no doubt be thankful that Monsieur Amel didn't choose Lewmar winches , B& G instruments or Volvo engines ( made by Perkins ) . Or maybe you were just speaking from personal experience , as an Englishman with more than two moving parts ?
