I think it's an 'Argonweld' product (Wally) which is the fella who made all Steves tanks.

It's not the actual foot assy that nice on Pauls, it seems the effort required to open his throttle on the efi system is very light, and the cable used has a very smooth operation.

Dont neglect the Land & Sea design.
It takes all types & can do a Push or Pull cable, IMHO this one is my fav but never tried & InControl but they do look so sexy.
How about a BluFin patented merc cable oiler?

"What's the general concensus on having an online shop within boatmad for specialist parts"


I assume this would also include some "Boatmad Goodies" such as "Caps" and "Shirts" !!!

Got any left ?

Seeing as the "Binliner" is up for sale (under offer) and a slight adjustment to the mortgage has been made..... I feel the need for "Speed"

Tulip thingy ??

If that was for me ....

The Tullio Abbate is still there but after working out the finances i recon it would come out at about 30k to finish it properly over approx 18mths, ( still want it though )
Seeing as Mrs Foolish and the Kids want to spend more time on the water i am looking at buying something ready to go ( Cranchi, Searay or similar 23' - 26') for 20k and then a "Cheap" Phantom or similar as a project when "Foolish" has gone

Mmm. Not one of my more articulate moments - I did of course mean Tulio (misspelt even then)

If it wasn't for the problem of lifting it over the house and matching some engines and drives to those holes left by the BMW's i would still buy it
