Hi Andy...we are thinking of making a modern version of the "Deep Sea" with our own BWM engines...

Yeah, one with a 100hp Diesel boxer engine you feature on your website will do.

Those diesel engines look like a real good package are there any more details available as the Web site is fairly vague what drive arrangement & what base engine are they etc?

You lads wouldn't be trying to talk poor andymr into a position where he would get nobbled for trade membership, would you? His kind assistance to our new Frawnsch member has been noted, but he's running on fumes now...

Do not want to get into to trouble from the greater good but I think (from Google) we are the only Rib company producing our own Ribs and engines - fed up with people telling us that our Volvo, Mercury or Yamaha engine has problems and it is our fault...anyway hope you are all working hard to get onto the water...looking forward to the warmer weather...?

OK, this sounds interesting. Interesting enough that I'll give you a free hit so you can tell us more about your engines.

It's unusual and sounds like quite a risky undertaking, but it must be an exciting prospect and you've obviously thought it through so what's the deal? What engines have you got? Are you buying in the blocks and marinising them in house? What drives are you using? Will you only be selling them packaged with your boats? Why are they better than the competition?

Not to mention what fuel can you run them on. I'd think there would be value in recycling chip oil if the engine could take it...

Those are exactly the questions I wanted to ask & I think a british manufacturer embarking on such an epic possibly market changing adventure deserves some forum leeway
Thank you john Kennet for seeing the sense in allowing the thread to continue ☺
