2 or 4 stroke, budget of around 6000.

Let me know if you see anything interesting please, low hours more important than age.

Many thanks

What do the Gotchi's want with a 150?
Why are none of the CI or French mainland guys coming over for the IOW trip?
We came over to your's for fish and chips and a pint.

2x 150 would be nice but pointless methinks.

That's a secret, not a very good one but one nonetheless. I'm sure I'll be able to put some stuff up on here in due course.

We wanted to but there is no chance in hell the boat will be ready. We gave all the bits to "our man" in NOVEMBER (to give him the down time of winter to do it all in) and he only sent it away for fibreglass in February, and only started on it in late April...then encountered Roy's hopeless rigging and has had to wait for a unexpected new bits and pieces that had been hacksawed to make them fit

Plus, re-rigging the motor because we have had a few oil and fuel supply issues and having inspected the liberal hacksaw and gaffer tape use decided that it probably needed doing properly..

Think I'm sorted for a 150 Opti now too
