It's on but not rigged, Daniel is down in a couple of weeks to do the wiring, I will offer the console on before that to make sure the control cables and hydro hoses fit properly

Excellent idea, I was going to suggest it at the weekend but, in all the excitement, forgot.

Couldn't have got where we are without your cunning plans.

I have another cunning plan but not sure if it will work so I'll take a pic if it does

Only some more great news

I've been in touch with OCA covers this week & their man James has very kindly offered a splash cover to go on the engine

This will protect Biffs handiwork and ensure the engine feels all cosy and even more loved !

Outboard Covers & Accessories

https://www.facebook.com/OutboardCovers?fref=ts

Several of us use these on our boats and I for one cant recommend them enough.

Now what to ask OCA to do - some chatting to our Ninja project leader on this and maybe ;

Black - with a grey top section ( to match the tubes )

Please do have a look at the website as it allows you to see the colour options and their FB page shows some of the clients they have - you may even see RIBnetters boat on there !


Any suggestions ?

Pete

(PS - Whisper is planning some great stuff )
