Hi Michael i only used the jet drive for one season as the lombardini 4.5 ph engine was not powerful enough also the internal petrol tank was to small and the other problem was the rubish in the canals kept blocking the jet unit but i gave it a go may bee a more modern jet  would work regards Viv.

WOW Victor, how fantastic, to see your Photo's.

I think I have only seen one other with its jet unit in place, did you use Mirarge with it working ?

Thanks Mick. I’ll do some learning about these - put my hand into the lower deck
K space and couldn’t see but could feel something had come loose under the deck hole so I’ll tighten that and see if that helps on the water,!! All a massive learning curve but very enjoyable%!
Cheers

As promised, somewhat belated,  a photo of the non-return valve in my Caraboat, note the hose clips have rusted away, they have now been replaced with stainless steel ones.

Lovely photo’s as usual from Neil and Bev, so inspiring, I notice you don’t mention your “winged chairs” LOL.
It is fantastic to hear from Victor I wish you would post more photo’s from your archive Victor (please, please, pretty please).
I know “Ruby Tuesday” has been used as a caravan and a boat this season could we see some photo’s of “her” being used as they were designed eg caravan/boat on land as well as water.
Can I suggest any photo’s published on this site are copyrighted to prevent wide spread use without the copyright owners consent.
Best wishes
