'Talisman IV' is a 25 foot
Bates Starcraft built in 1957. She is currently
undergoing complete restoration.
Update 8th January 2020
'Talismaní at last has her new engine lowered
in. It is a 35hp Beta Marine diesel. I specified
the 7 degree down angle gearbox to keep the the
height of the engine to minimum above the
cockpit sole, which is about 120mm. Just need to
get on with all the many jobs necessary to get
it ready to run now!
