2 of us manouvered her in by hand, with a great deal of difficulty, as the drive slopes down hill it was to much for me to pull her out again on my own

Fuel tanks

Can anyone recommend a fuel tank manufacturer? I have found one manufacturer and they produce tanks in stainless steel or aluminium what are the pros & cons of both types? The tanks will be mounted under the deck and foamed in position.

Why not go back to Osprey and have a fiberglass one made? They must have the moulds for the Sea harrier as well as other models. They should be very keenly priced.

Its costing $550 to ship over. You have to pay import duty of 4.5% and 17.5% VAT on the total price.

Thats a lot less than I thought it would be! Does that include the engine being collected from sellers place or did he have to get it to the docks?
