    poetry in motion
    Got a 180hp perkins in the back garden with under 100hrs on the clock. We though of chucking that in her but it would just bury the stern and use more fuel to gain half a knot but she looks great under way as she is and a gallon an hour's just fine.  Wifes not to keen on the garden ornament though.

    here's a compromise to offer the weife
    take the heid off and then there will be six nie pots to plant things in
    then remove the sump pan and use it as an ornamental trough!
