    Maybe this has been posted before but in case it hasn’t I thought I’d share - I found it yesterday on YT and enjoyed it...

    Car Throttle is quite a good YT channel , silly challenges and general messing around.

    Likes his Mercs as he has done a few reviews.

    A friend once told me that the second happiest day of his life was the day he bought his boat.

    And the happiest day of his life was the day he got rid of the f****r.

    I have the same model as well with less problems
    I guess that's what happens when you don't look after it and let the issues pile up. Love the fridge though might retrofit one in my CL

    We had a lovely speedboat out in Skiathos but the costs certainly outweighed the fun. One summer (2012) it never got out the boatyard!!
