Thanks - I'll try and get hold of Ian see if he remembers that boat. Is it now owned by a RIBnet member?

The Sailmate engine seems to be available everywhere in the Mariner version with the nasty "unpainted Airfix grey" cowling, and nowhere as the Merc version with the black cowl. Got somebody who is looking into swapping the cowling over so that will sort that out

Ian doesn't remember so I will have to chance ordering it and see if I can work something out... it's obviously possible somehow though.

The Mariner cowls are painted - a metallic silver finish.

I know - it just reminds me of the colour of airfix model aeroplanes I used to make as a kid and then could never be bothered to paint

Anyway I found a helpful supplier that will sell me a Mariner engine but swap the cowl for a Merc one so that is sorted out
