Crompton in Antigua retube

Season's greetings from Antigua, we've been out here retubing a Crompton 12.5 diesel inboard, the customer uses it for a seasport company and is repowering with 315 Yanmar's and so decided to spruce it up with a new tube too!
Fantastic weather out here and more work lined up too!! ... why the hell am i going back to England!!!

No this is jolly harbour, English harbour has too many pretentious sunbleached superyacht crew for my liking, we met some really good people on this tripand managed to get some boardriding in too. It's a shame the engines weren't ready I really fancied having a blast on the crompton.
