Well done mate!

Glad you have got rid of the gay kisses!!

What do you mean engine blown? what about your marine survey?How busted is the motor?, i might know a man who can.

So much for the full engine rebuild.

had survey sounded awfull compression was 45, 25, 125 ( with a bad knock ) all the rest 150

guy had a full rebuild a couple of years ago spent £5k not many hours since he`s had lots of other trouble aswell broken springs water in oil don`t know alot about motors but its been apart a fair few times. got it cheap enough to put a crate motor in so i thought i`d do that, peice of mind and every thing else seems in really good nick legs ok new manifold risers etc and quite a quick option 3 weeks should be in the water.

I had a friend in this morning who said exactly that... it was a boat owned by a guy he knows well and he spend 5K some years back and paid very good money for the boat when he first purchased it, my friend said it ran well against his boat when it was on song...a new motor seems the way to go looks like you will have a lot of fun out of her when fixed
