Sounds like a fine plan!! Then, if she doesn't want it, you could use it for her!!!

Got quite a few of these in the CMBA (Classic Motor Boat Association http://www.cmba-uk.com/ ) & I love the ali ones, for some reason the plastic one's don't do it for me although you get the option of the Essex V6 version which, whilst only a little faster, sounds a lot better!

I am looking for a straight tin one myself to add to the collection, pretty boat in my eyes.

Larby, I enjoyed reading the thread on the Revenger rebuild (well most of it, if you get my drift) - where is it at now?

Yep, I get your drift!

At the mo I've just finished off all the major structural bits. Just got the new engine bulkhead top to glass in and the dash to sort then it's time to get ready for paint! As I keep promising, I'll take some pics and update the thread, hoping to push on with it really soon.

Cheers, James
