Been following this thread with interest - sorry to hear the news regards the engine. If it doesn't rain it pours!

See what comes up on the used engine front. I've posted you a link to what could be a suitable engine.

Thanks gents for all the help and links, going to need to recoup some money and find a bit more before making a decision on where we go.

Death to the yank pig iron, anyone need a mooring?...

An update.

Found another engine, not quite as old but so far (touches wood) its pretty strong. The last couple of outing have been good, no problems.

Anyway, its come a long way...





New seat and backrest...



We have a few jobs to do this winter, one will be making these two match...



We are also going to add an elephants trunk, the original deck drain holes are worse than useless.
