I have used both.

Steel developments were rude and unhelpful

Prop Solutions were much better


I am sure others have had different experiences,am just recounting mine

That's alright. I'm entitled to my opinion, and that was my experience. Anyway, my plums are now owned by SWMBO. There'd be a pretty good handbag fight if someone else wanted skewering rights

I always now use Castle Marine in North Wales, after being a dissatisfied customer of Steel Developments.

Have found Castle Marine just a good service. However have'nt used them for a few years.

Prop Solutions did my Raker after I knackered it at MtSt.M (going there on 22 Jan - see thread if interested) and they did a good job; you can't really tell it had been damaged. As for female engineers, I find them a big turn on really; much like petite ladies who wear full leathers and ride fast bikes. Even Mrs GJ0KYZ looks cute when she's helming the boat. And don't forget Ellen MacArthur is more rock than all of us put together. By the way Keith, I think you mean "uninterested" not "disinterested".

Yes, indeed I did. Thank you kind sir for correcting me so discreetly too.

Its something to do with Gotchiguy, not sure if it relates to a 6.8m with a 4 stroke and a 7.2m with a 2 stroke, I could of course be talking absolute bollocks, which isn't unheard of....

Female engineers.

[QUOTE=GJ0KYZ;384188] . As for female engineers, I find them a big turn on really; much like petite ladies who wear full leathers and ride fast bikes. Even Mrs GJ0KYZ looks cute when she's helming the boat. And don't forget Ellen MacArthur is more rock than all of us put together.

What about Claire Barrett from Salvage Squad?She would be useful to have around!
Ellen McArthur is just too butch
miss barrett in her boiler suit-dribble,dribble!
