Morris marina! fine vehicle! and from the same era as a Formula 242 (but quicker)

Ignore all these nobbers Mr Carrcross, they're merely jealous of your enthusiasm!
Especially the nobber with the worlds slowest rib...oh no, that's rubber dub nobber innit.

Marina 12'

I got a marina 12 about a year and a half ago, got it for nothin' and it was worth less!!! The hull and deck were seperated and the deck was cut in half??? I tore it completely appart and replaced all the timber in it. I have an old loop charged 60 johnson that was ported and modified, to hang on the back.

It's still waiting on some seats and upholstery, don't know wheather to rig it centre steer or side! How fast does yours go with the 70hp? It should fairly scoot, I would say!

But you don't even drive your car that fast so there isn't a prayer of you driving your boat that fast!

Marina

Matt, yeah hehe ... Don't have a garage and insects seem to love the smell of wet paint, land on it and then go on a little wander before they decide to die.

Steve: heres the diff. style decks I was talking about, I'll have a look to see if I have the windscreen template.

No. 1, thats not me, lol...

power

If I were choosing between the 40 and the 70, I would go with the 70Hp. It should take it fairly well, just check the condition of your transom. I have another 60 johnson in the shed and the only thing stopping me from hanging both on is the lack of a lefty gearbox.

If you can get an old OMC stinger you would be laughing, theres loads of them about as they were used to race S850 tunnel boats but I don't think that engine is class legal anymore.

Engine

Matt: I haven't run it yet. I kinda ran out of steam on it about the time the V-king arrived.... I realy don't know why It isn't a realy a 70 but it's probably around mid 60's. I cut the heads a bit, cleaned up the block halves, cut the exhaust out a bit. It's all mainly bolt on's now to finnish it, I just need to get the time to do it!

I do need to finnish it soon though, need to get moving on another project
