At 3o litres per engine your dammed right we dont.Ran the goldie on it in the 60s though.
I think it was the fact that the temperature is normally about 110 the paint
crackles a bit .the oil smell combined with hot rust and anti freeze.

Avast behind..

John,

Good to see you, you old pirate..! Sorry I didn't get time for more of a chat.

You might like these ones of the old girl... and the boat! I knew we were in-for a wet ride in Thunderbolt... when you see Horatia "taking it green" you know it's a little choppy out there. Wind against tide. But i think you can take something for that...
