Prop repairs in Oldham.

Found this company which is only 2 mile up the road from me which is nice and handy. To fix my 17" prop and balance it 30

It might be handy for some of our members who are local to or near Oldham.

I need to get my engine an electronic tilt as it is a bit difficult for me to lift on my own. Do you think they would be able to do it Mister K??

I don't think so Nat, they just do props. I did ask if they service outboards and they don't.

Oh well it was worth a try :-)

Hey I launched from Liverpool Sailing Club onto the Mersey on Saturday. We had a fantastic day out and a few big RIBs joined us along with a hovercraft haha. We also saw 5 SBS's on exercise.

Yes you were correct with the former!!

The Mersey would prove difficult for the "Sissy Black Shadows" or "Silly Big Schoolgirls" as I initially thought
