Sturgess makes it clear in the book that he borrowed, and did not own, the boat.

Page 11: "Hobo's owner responded very positively to my very provocative phone call....to my great joy the loan of the boat was agreed".

So my guess is that you quite possibly do have the boat. It was being kept at greenwich YC at the time, perhpas there is some documentation showing that.

Hi Rob,

I had a problem a few years ago and it turned out to be a combination of dirty fuel which had caused damage to the injectors, and the exhaust elbow which was almost completely blocked with soot.
Like may other people, I only used my engine to leave the berth and return later, so the engine never warmed up properly.

@Bitbaltic - in that case you may be correct as I think Hobo was previously at Greenwich YC.  I must get the book Smile.
 
@Samuel - I do get fuel coming out of the breather pipe when heeled over with a full tank so will do what you suggest next time.  Regarding the gauze filter, that caused me lots of problems before I realised it existed and indeed initially it caused me problems with dirt getting stuck in it so I added a pre-filter to avoid that problem.
 
@Hightime - my fuel and tank seem really clean, I even took a video of the inside when I emptied it.  I also blew back through the output pipe to check it is clear.  The problem still happens for me even if I try throttling up with the engine in neutral so not related to things like a stuck prop.
 
@sailingfree - now you have me worried that I have problems with the injectors Cry  I'm pretty sure it is not the exhaust elbow as I had that checked by an engineer.  I also only use my engine to leave and return to the berth, including coming in and out of Portsmouth harbour, so I find a full tank at the start of the year lasts me almost the full summer.  That made me wonder about dirty fuel or water in the fuel but did not seem to be the problem.
 
Thanks everyone for the help and ideas! - @Rob-K - any luck from your side?

It's only really worth it because the boat was a 301. Sturgess comes across as an essentially unlikeable character who thinks everyone he meets outside SE England is some kind of uppity peasant. He vanity published it in its first form, but it was then picked up by Fernhurst and I see they are currently reprinting it so it must be selling quite well.

Thanks for your comments and apologies for my late response.  I've been sailing in N Brittany and the Channel Islands.  The symptoms you describe are exactly what I experience on my boat.  I'm now fairly sure that the problem is not fuel related as I've checked just about everything I can think of.  So I now suspect the governor which I think could cause the symptoms if it is sticky or inadequately lubricated.
I will investigate further and let you know if I have any success.

I'm mechanic and think there are only two possiblities:
The breather pipe is not really open, even just just a bit or the exhaustpipe/system is to small or not really open, or clocked.

I read Kim Sturgess account of round GB trip in Hobo 'This Precious Isle' . And it inspired us to do the same.
Kim didnt own Hobo but borrowed her, that explains why is is not on your previous owner list.
You may find my wifes Blog of rounding GB this year at :-http://meandmypaintbox.blogspot.co.uk/
We are based in East Cowes and visit Gosport with our 301 Bloto:  have seen your 301 in Haslar.
On our trip we saw several other 301 s.

PS we started 13th April, so you have to look backwards in the blog.
