looks good, not many about now, Meteor 40 should give it speed but not too powerful nor too heavy. Please keep us posted on restoration and show some photo`s of progress.

Hi Vortex would there be any benefit from fitting a merco 49 instead of Meteor 40?

im not an expert but dont think either would be out of place, id personally fit the one thats easiest to start. Im sure that Jerome Grainger fitted a 61 Merco or Webra but the hull was new then.
