Well, yesterday Gordon McMath (GM Lifting) went well beyond the call of duty, helping both Matt and I with craning motors out, in, in, out, in, blah, blah, blah, and totaly saved the day.

Without his invaluable help, we'd both still be struggling, and I'd like to thank him publicaly!

Hope you get a chance to come out on me oul vessel at the weekend Gord (weather permitting)

Cheers

Indebted of Shepperton.

In my case it was 'in', as some complete tosser had made a wee faux pas when fitting the oil coolers 1 1/2 seasons ago, that could only be rectified by removing an engine!

What a nob!

Whilst it had survived 1 1/2 seasons 'as was' and would probably be OK, I simply couldn't carry on using it, once in posession of the knowledge that it wasn't right. ....feckin boats!!..ooood avvemm?
