What a long debate that was! If you want the full story let me know, but in summary:

- 4-stroke is heavier, lots heavier when you get to this size of engine
- optimax is (alegiadly) equal or even better fuel economy to 4-stroke
- optimax is better performance
- i was swung to Mercury by some superb offers, but they don't have anything between 115 and (not even sure if it's a merc) 200 ish. I'd had to have settled for 115hp

Dream on , i wish.

Steering not arrived yet. Prop not arrived yet. Seats still with Mr stainless. Other seat with Mr upholstry...

...and more importantly Mr trained Mercury installer who has to turn the key for the first time for warrenty purposes is on Holiday 'till Sunday

Still, it's been nice to use his yard for 2 wks to get everything else sorted.

Oh, and untill Pete AKA skyeseafari collects grayswish on Monday it's not insured.

Not as many Pic's, forgot camera!

Well, a sucessful day, although very little to show for it:

Made tray for battery from 18mm marine ply
Wired in fuse box
Made battery leads and connected isolator
Threaded loads of cables all over the boat, discovered main battery ones and oil tank pipes are not long enough
Wired in smartgagues, discoveres Merc (Barrus) send a wrong lead, double
Fitted VHF, Switches
Removed old steering

and finally, overhauled grayswish trailer ready for her longest journey ever!

Forgot the camera, but rushed home to get it as it was getting dark. Michael doing... er something!
