Ex-RNLI 40hp Marinatsoo would be nice on there. Go on, spoil the old girl and give her what she deserves.

Yes, you're right, unfortunately other than tiny outboards she needs an electric start and
i don't want a console or one of those side mounted steering kits in it, i'm trying to keep it as simple as possible, it's already starting to look like the inside of a handbag.

probably open another pasty shop


mariner 30 is much easier to start than the 40/50 triples and would go well on that . Thats my problem with the tatsu 50 the women can't start it .

Mind you she can't start a 3.5 hp lawnmower either
