Thanks. To be honest I have long admired Malc's boats and am very glad that I have decided to order a new one, however,here's the deal:
I have spec'd the boat and the matls/tubes etc are now on order and build is scheduled in the factory. However I haven't yet spec'd an engine as I have agreed a plan with Malcolm to try to source a second hand outboard in order to keep my budget down to a 'sensible' level. I am hoping to find a suitable unit for around £5/6k second hand( In the ideal world I would probably be rushing out with the chequebook for a nice shiny 200 etec or similar
I guess I am aiming around the 150-200 HP area, and after discussions probably looking at a 2stroke DI rather than a four in order to cope with additional weight.
Need to start looking soon as I want to try to get the engine to Malc in advance of the build so he can fit and rig it. - I feel a wanted post coming on.....
