    I like the look of her, Dylan. I just finished an NZ Coastguard diesel maintenance course based on material from the UK, possibly the RYA one. It was very good. Just saying …

    but only after you have narrowed down the list of fixes. It will be an interesting evening working through the systems and gear.

    main reason I bought her

    sounds like a sewing machine compared to the single pot on the slug and the two potter on the previous centaur
