Conditions probably, oh and the fact he was trimmed out so far the engine was nearly air cooled....certainly went for it when they knew it was in sight.

Well done again

and a very nice one too, domsticated, clean, tidy and can do household chores while you're at work. Don't think it's for everyone though.

If we have enough of it Monkey World is just round the corner and they'd love to have him......

I think tricky is a dirty rotten cheat, and you should stump up the protest fee to get him busted Chris!

They did not strip my engine. But they did photograph the engine seals which were placed on the engine when the RYA stripped the engine 6 weeks ago. The seals are lead seals with wire, and the engine also has metal stamps on each component. The engine is also sealed where it is connected to the boat, so I cant swap engines without breaking the seals.

I think the idea is that anyone can see if I have changed anything since the engine was certified.

Anyone is free to protest - The cost of the stripdown and re-assembly is £2200 for gaskets, consumables & Geoffs time and £330 to the RYA scrutineer for his time.

The RYA scrutineer who stripped and certified my engine was Norman Taylor.

Hate to say this Tricky but, Mr Taylor is not on the 'Approved' list of RYA Offshore officials. May make ratification a little difficult.
