Anyway , I lost interest in the photo taking after a bit , slaved away a bit more, got some nice rubbry bits from Henshaws, I wont bore you with how I rigged up the engine "n" that , but basically this is where it is today.
I will eventually tart up the consol and get some new bits but it all runs and thats all that matter for now. Roll on some calm weather for the flat out , see if it disintegrates or the transom explodes.
To all none fans, LOL , this is for you, just as I was drilling in the key hole into the consol, after restoring it all painstakingly, I turned round with drill , literally just moved slightly , had the drill bit point sticking out and...............pierced the bloody tube , a pin prick puncture in my otherwise patchless tube, GUTTED !! lol , NOT.
