*Off the A frame, the 2 white plastic pipe clips that go on the top that hold the pole which has the all round white light when it folds up and down. Also the clevis pin that holds the pole up in place. Sorry I don't know the sizes until we get the a frame back.

*Old school Mariner male fuel fitting to fit fuel hose. Like this:

MERCURY MARINER FUEL LINE FITTING MALE CONNECTOR | eBay

*Wide trailer board, think its about 5" or more, needs to be wide as the poles that come out of the trailer are quite far apart.

* 2 x Carling Switches

*Ratchet straps x 3

*Orange prop bag

*There will also be a few small bits at the end of the build but hoping not too much, keep an eye on this thread

*If we provide a decent safety package with the boat then according to the RYA we would need the following items which are ideal for a company/chandlery to donate...

Pump for tubes
Fire Extinguisher
First Aid Kit
Safety knife / rope cutter
Tool kit in a waterproof case (suitable for a Yamaha 90hp 2 Stroke)
Waterproof torch
Handheld VHF (nice to have)

The number one priority it to raise enough money to pay for the engine and trailer by selling parts and collecting donations into the bank account in my signature By donating money in this way allows us to complete the build. So for example a 10 donation soon becomes worth a lot more as the build comes together and at the end, the final sale price will have gift aid added so it is the most effective way to contribute to this project
Have you got the carling switches yet? I think I have a couple in my box of bits...

No I haven't got any that match each other so a pair would be good, there isn't much in the way of switchable equipment, we have a good push button trip switch fuse board that the vhf and plotter will be wired into but the switches would be good

Hi peter,
Please pay as normal through PayPal, I'm an eBay business and it gives paper trail.
If you wanted to buy a bag, do it through eBay and I will throw in another box of glow sticks, all the money, less postage will be sent to alex for the boat fund.
Thanks Phil
