Fridays Prize Draw.......

Guess the cost !

I've just had my Yamaha 70hp 2 stroke 3 cylinder outboard fully serviced. Oils, filters, plugs, impeller, carbs balanced etc.

I called the engineer last night to confim the job was complete and asked the cost in order to get some cash from the ATM.

He advised he had yet to prepare his bill. So, how much do you reckon I should expect to pay.

I'll find out over the weekend and report back on Monday. The closest figure will receive a prize by post.

p.s

My company produces extremely high valued goods for the retail sector !!!
