Sort of finished last night. Had to fiddle with height etc. It's gone on centally and looks tiny compared to that nail of a Jonny V4. Lee will do the rest.

Just returned from maiden run, excellent. The Dateline and the Merc 75 work well.

Yeah. Fortunately, there's a circuit of pubs on the Fal.

Showing 45mph now,39/40 with the V4 heapster, faster pull-out,improved balance,far less row and better economy. An allround gain.

Very much like binning an Opti and replacing it with an Etec.

If I replaced an Opti with an Etec I'd be the one going round in circles, at least while the Etec gets turned off and on again

Turns out that my Etec stopped, 'coz your Optis had nicked all of the fresh air in the area and replaced it with partially burnt DFI smog. There we were blaming the gulls for the stink.
