    My favorite is the L3.
    Here is the first L3 ever made , still working in a converted Scottish fishing boat.

    Gee I am glad I never had to work on boat motors, my boats had sails.

    So did mine , and an engine .
    But when you can no longer sail you either stay off the water , or get a motor boat.
    If you get a motor boat , get something with character .

    I built several boats with Gardners. The say was that if you had a Gardner you could weld the engine room door shut.

    No way Trev !.
    One of the advantages of owning a boat with a Gardner , is being able to watch the thing working !.
