The following is from the current owner who is the third owner. It will give you an idea of the maintenance background.

I am a registered Diesel mechanic (IAME), Engineering UTS Sydney, plumbing trade registered, Electrical trade registered - among other things. I do not do anything by halves. I design, repair, and modify machinery, hydraulics for maximum reliability. I have gone through all the boat systems, and all were serviced, repaired and / or modified by myself a matter of course. If there are areas, I am not knowledgeable or confident with such as fiberglass or if hull penetrations are involved, I leave this to the experts. Otherwise, all other modifications and maintenance carried out on LT556N since I purchased her in July 2016 have been done by me. (Except propeller shaft replacement 2018)
