Excellent, thanks for that. Wouldn't mind one myself, they look like solid little boats. But, going on what I have read here, not so easy to come by...

Ahh, good stuff. Currently doing the same (varnishing, couple of deck fittings) to that 3.6 Suzumar I got, it will be a good substitute until I find a Y (he said three years on!). But it's given me a really nice little Indespensipn trailer, 2006 Mariner and I have a Y mattress and orange fuel bladder and compass so getting there!
