The steering rams interfere with the tabs we have so we're trying it without first - or a bow tank - we may add either or both at a later stage.

Cookee, a bit of flocking would look good on the interior.
Autoflock.co.uk - Flocking
It's been used on rally car dashes for a while now. A lad I know is providing a flocking service.

Cookee - looks awesome

I'm down in Salcombe from this Friday evening for a week, is your new boat going to be seen on the water?

Mollers - Helpful as always!

Zippy - if you look there are four rams - two for steering and two for trimming the drives! Always room for more sponsorship! The fourth seat will be avaialable to anyone who can bring in some money to pay for entry fees and fuel costs - fuel will be cheap @ only 104lph flat out for both motors!

Black - You're welcome during opening hours at the workshop in Churchstow (9.30 to 5.30) (07836 268747) and unless we have a lot more unforeseen issues we will definitely be out before the end of next week - big wedding to go to on Saturday at Cliff House first though!

Cookee, assuming I can loose the kids somewhere I'll be up to say hello.

Do you launch from Batson with the crane?

We have a trailer for the slip - just hope it will get over the hump as it's a bit long!

Who's driving the B/shark Facebook site? They're keeping that a humour free zone.
