Tank,
You should put a an add in the "Powerboats/Marine Parts Wanted/For Sale" on this forum.

Bit of healthy competition never hurt anyone!

All the best

Thanks guys. I've also now discovered these guys make em. http://www.raffshore.com/raf2.html (forum search).

I've seen the one on Gav's boat. It looks good. I don't have an engine yet (sold the opti) but just putting together a few ideas. I have a few bits coming together ...

Tank - no prices on your boatsandoutboards ad. How much for an alien cowl ? (Does the same one fit all V6's, i think so) It's not for an opti.

Cool alien cowl

the price on my boats and outboards ad is for a complete set including liner, s/s plate, clips, graphics, which is £300.
I make them for all V6 Merc/Mariners and also Optimax V6. This requires a different base plate so the cowling clears the alternator.
