Sorry I've kinda slumped on the trailer briefly - the little one's back in hospital again, so I've been a tad distracted.

I have for you:

Aluminium toolbox (to bolt on to the trailer to put ratchet straps etc in). I'm sure, between us, Biff and I can fab some mounting brackets for it.

A small Pelicase (it's been lightly used), but they're good bits of kit and waterproof. I thought it could be used for a toolbox for the Yam tools

Ratchet straps. Think they're blue, from memory, but if you want to go with the black ones, you can have them anyway for spares

A single axle flushing kit that I'll fit

A grease gun (I'll load with grease)


I'm busy at present, but will post a pic when I can and drop to Biff. If the lightingboard is 6' (which I suspect) then I'll supply one of those too.

All the best, Ben

This really is fantastic news

We owe Neil Harvey 2,250 minus The icom Radio that he bought for 100 (the radio is being sent to Daniel to be tested and the mmsi number removed).

So the Balance we owe Neil is 2,150 (unless there's anything wrong with the icom)

As we have 1,725 in Biffer's bank account the balance is -425

We have sold the fuel tanks for 30 and we have an offer on the hull for 200, so if these deals go ahead the we only need 195 and that will be the engine and trailer paid for

I don't live far from Wincanton would it be possible to see some of the restoration work being done?
