The rigging is Pukka now but the paint work is old and faded. There is nowt wrong with the hull other than cosmetics and the carpetting.
I have to have it off the trailer soon so Gav can put my 600xsl on to it. Although I can keep it down the side of the boatmad workshop I am worried that Gav may go mad one day with the grinder and cut it up and bin it! Anything, even a hot tub, has got to be a better ending than that!
Marshans have a bad rep for bad handling so nobody wants one but I would like to see something done with it rather than ending up in bits.

I am with Wayne Kerr & Alias on their points of view!

Don't think Marshans have a bad reputation for handling - more of a bit of a hard ride.

The 21's that used to race were quite successful.

Think I would rather drive a Marshan than a Ring if it came to it

Little Pete (forum member) drove his Marshan very well. He spanked that 6-Pack nobba with the SR7/XR2 at the Poole chrities race last year.

Anyone else here got any crazy idea's for its future life?
You / Somebody puts it on ebay and donates the proceeds as a "Bar Tab" at the next "Boatmad" evening

At least you can claim you "Sunk it ! "

Mmm, maybe, so I'll rephrase it:

"Past form has shown you'll do anything to avoid going too quick".

Is that better?

Just ask Barrie Williams.
He raced to several championships in the mid to late 80's in OCR with a Marshan 162 powered by merc 115. Even beat Clive "Spanner" Jones on a more than a few occasions in his ex Roger Trotman's P18 Orwak.

Always like positive thinking - far too much of the opposite at times!
