If your not aware they are a family firm that sell hand built engines assembled by mechanics with oilly rags. Best to phone them, after you have joined the owners club for the discount.

Didn't know that either.
I used to use a Starfish 34 with a Mermaid & shaft drive. One of the most reliable engines i have ever used in a marine enviroment.

Mermaid are great - most of the older ones based on British built ford lorry engines. The newer engines are again Ford and JCB.

They're great pair of engines. Will try and get some photos' next time I'm up there as you wouldn't believe how mint they are. Because my parents live aboard my dad spends most of his time down sat in between them even though they don't need anything doing to them.
Time for a service now though. Tough on the old wallet!
