The "sniff of an A7 engine" turned into a purchase and I've now got a lump of metal under covers.

Now to work out who can help me fit it.

Oh, that is a shame - especially on such lovely looking paintwork.

This afternoon, I tried to improve my chances of staying in the UK post-Brexit.
To prove that I'm more British than German, I did a really traditional English thing. I went to a garden centre on Easter Monday. And I queued without complaining.
Have I passed the citizenship test?

This evening, I tried to find a video or two of a Peugeot Partner smashing the Nordschleife van record on Saturday. It went round in under 9 minutes. (It's in a couple of clips, but nothing special to look at.)

I felt the need for a vehicle that could do multiple tip runs over the next few months. The spec was simple:

Estate car preferred
Max price £1000
If I don't muck it up, could be sold on for a profit when finished with.

I bought this today:

We've just got back from a 4-day shakedown trip on the boat.
The trip over to France was bumpy and wet, but quick. The return was a cracking sail in much better sea and some sunshine.

Most of the gremlins we found were electrical. This can happen after a winter lay-off, but I did not expect the remote engine stop to malfunction.
Possibly more problematic was that the yard had not reconnected the earth line that joins the mast to the keel. I wonder what would have happened if we'd had a lightning strike?

Lo All
Finally bit the bullet and bought a pair of new door trims.
I had covered mine with vinyl wrap as they looked awful.
Problem I had with them was My rain deflectors would rip the wrap up.
The new one's look great but we're a bit of a pain to remove the old one's.
I will take some piccies tomorrow.
Cheers.
Toadster.
