He certainly is - he's even dragged it out of the garage and has been using up all my Rib-Revive and 3M tube protector rather than playing on the Playstation!

If Rick needs your stapler back (or if you just want custody of it anyway) give us a shout... it's still sat on the worktop waiting to go down to fix my other three seats

ps - i still have an 11.25x15 ally prop from a suzi 65 in the garage.
It's pretty beaten up round the edges, but would be OK as a cheap (well free) spare if you want it and it fits.

Whisper's SR4.7 was working OK when mine would only go in reverse and he towed me back to Poole from Yarmouth in early July! (Beer tokens still owed for that )

Congratulations Rick: I look forward to seeing you at the helm of your own boat!

Great news !!! I seem to recall Nasher was an expert on fixing reverse on older Suzukis ? And I recall seeing him 'mount' an SR to prove the point on the SR gathering a few years ago while shouting ' I have no reverse'
