The 2nd 6.8m on this thread that you took to Portishead to try out, what size is the engine? Is it a 250hp?

Thanks Mick, Skin fittings for 70mm transoms are not easy to find and tend to look a bit untidy so we designed our own... we also make quite a few Stainless extras in house using a laser cutter.

The Ignition Switch Plate and Carling Switch plate are other examples.

I can confirm there is no problem at all with an aux! Just needs a minor change to the top of the transom. I had mine done like it from new, but it's not a major job.

Think I really should carry smaller fenders though, I found it impeded performance noticeably
