Posted by member Iain Muspratt on Sunday 4 February 2024

I own a Hardy 50 which was initially named Penlova and was built in 2004/5
It is fitted with a Hydraulic Crane driven through a Vetus Hydraulic Unit. It has recently been serviced and everything works well except for the actual lift and reurn of the crane hook wire. We think there may be something wrong with the valve on the Vetus Unit but we cannot work out which this is (the steering,bow thruster and windlass are also powered off the Vetus Unit)
There are manuals for everything on the boat except for the Crane and I wonder if anyone knows of a former Hardy Employee in North Walsham who might know the boat. Cockwells have been very helpful but have no plans themselves
The boat is now called Dolphin of Plymouth and I have owned it since 2016
