Hi Lewy!

Couldn't get your link to work, but as an emergency cheap set it would be better than nothing. I would probably cover all of the tools in an oil soaked cloth - that way at the end of the season they would still be of some use!

What happened to you at the poker run - I thought you were coming?

No it was a Mercury 2.5 EFI - 280 horsepower - it's a race engine really, premix oil and you have to look after them! The cowling was a fibreglass one that I'm having painted to blend in a bit better!

For the record the Verado was amazing, and they have upgraded them recently - the new motors will be out later this year and will have different graphics - depending on the model they will have much better fuel consumption - in some cases well over 20% better!

Have fun tomorrow - hope it's sunny for you!
