the story so far

the owner of this boat agreed she needed some tlc, we've just about got on top of it, i have hopefully simplified the wiring by throwing away years of add on's, taking off redundant steering pump and all the pipework, just tidying wiring and tubework now

That's a KAD44..I've just spent the weekend doing a head gasket on one. with no space round about it. It would be great in a rib and all that access.
looks in good nik...nice green antifreeze

That's not Loo Roll silly, it's Bloo Roll, obviously misplaced from Biff's R&D Department. Basically it's superstrength Loo Roll (Biffer Sized) which has been infused with a subtle blend of Bloo and TFR. Guaranteed to restore both lustre and fragrance to the most neglected undercarriage.
