Dum de dum.

It sounds like an etec, but looks like a gay, red-neck bass-boat effort.

That was after Jan Falkowski made a mess of it when he flipped it - luckily without serious injury - see the exclusive photos and story in Sports Boat and Rib next month! :-)

I heard a rumour, albeit 3rd hand, that cookies engineering skills ain't up to much, and his motor got ever so slightly "cooked" due to a slight oversight when he did a powerhead swap, it came to a sudden stop on the kilo due to an overheat situation.

This was then compounded later in the day when having got it running, it again came to a sudden stop due to no fuel. Must have been running a bit lean prior to that.
