    Hi CJ,

    Eish, you're yalking plenty of elbow grease now.
    You're welcome to contact me 012 661 4751.
    I will help you if you won't take any shortcuts on the rebuild.
    People want to 'save money' in the weirdest of ways, especially in SA.
    Which hull is it, how old is that motor, and what do you want to do with the boat ?
    Perhaps a picture, it always makes it easier to see what you're in for.

    Very funny cthippo, not ALL the town and street names in SA have been changed to some unpronouncable or offensive philamon name. They were going to change Pretoria to Tshwane wich means 'ape', so it would have been 'city of the apes'. No **** ! Not far out under this government, but it was fortunately stopped.
