At the moment we are not on speaking terms after she let me down missing the classic rally.
engine nearly rebuilt but having a break this week end its hard building an engine of that size on your own especially when all the helpers who promised dont turn up yet again.
With retirement looming not so sure this is the road i want to continue down mate.
The Sony Levi on the IOW looks nice

Hi mike just looking down the lists of old missing powerboats and reconized this one ,my father bought this boat which had the jag engines in it and when we got her someone had put a 180hp ford sabre in with a velvet drive box and we finished building the boat down at cob ,s quay,had to reskin the transom which looked like it had been shot at also all new floors rudder prop shaft instrument,s etc etc. always remember the first start up filling the marina with smoke and upsetting the guy behind in a sailing boat, the colour was the usual blue and white, kept the boat for a while going to france and channel islands, was moored at keyhaven will see if i can get pictures. regards nickgtd40
