Ok onwards..Next Job.
Take the plunge and order the engine. Spoke to many people (the usual lunatics and some) so thanks for tips and advice.
Only one sleepless night so not too bad. So it was either lie in bed wid da mrs or head to BHG marine in Lymington where they hold a regular Yamaha stroking courses!I chose the latter.. I did recognise a few faces there tho?!!?
Opened at 8.30 but I think I must have got there at 6AM.
As soon as I saw her that was that. New Yam f70 was mine.

Thank you Chris.. It goes VERY well also!!

Now for the Rigging.. slightly changed since the two smokes so a few more wires n shit..and the immobiliser to locate and fit Sonar on Transom. Not a fan of drilling transoms but it was a necessary evil as has to be in the water.
