Mike's a star with v reasonably priced work. Nice to have someone who knows what he is doing working on the boat. Also very kindly drove it up to SIT for further work. Saved us a 4hr round trip! Cheers mike. Beers owed in Conwy on 19th!!!

Any special tips, other than elbow grease, need to do mine in a couple of weeks
