Replacement cowling part 2

Just been and collected this from the shipping agent, I'd say it's better than the original, and a 1/3rd of the price!

Under RYA rules the cowling is part of the homologated engine and cannot be replaced with a pattern part, whilst it would need an over zealous scrutineer or a protest to disqualify you, it is still illegal to race with one.

Still reckon you need a couple of sets of (either of) these.

All nice & matching

Lack of leadership from the Captain was the problem

The one in the pics above, is bob's machine shop replacement, about 400 bucks I think, for whole kit, cowl, tray and S/S sandwich plate.

It's absolutely superb quality
