Default Trophy 2052 Hardtop

Hi there everyone, out of interest we decided to make a custom hardtop for our 2052, check it our at http://p076.ezboard.com/fbocwebfrm26...icID=653.topic - took the boat out yesterday for a great run offshore, and was all nice and warm.

As I stated before, they did a real nice job on it. That boat is coming along fine. How is the diesel working out? I have to keep that in mind down the road.

Hay there Mole2, the diesel is working out great, I guess after having the power of the V8 - and then going to this is very noticable, but for economy we sure can not beat the 1.7L - still pushes us along round 50kph (sorry not sure of mph) and burns bugger all fuel.

It would be nice if maybe a slightly larger engine could have fitted in, but it does not really matter if it takes an extra 30 minutes to get somewhere when you take the fuel savings into account.
