Very smart but as the man said the cuddy wants chopping off to give some decent fishing space.

Hi all thanks for the comments, I have emailed shetland and they say its not one of theres, As for the cuddy, im afraid it stays as we can sleep in there when night fishing! The deck space is big enough for two, i have had 3 but you have to be careful, Most of the time were 3 or 4 miles from were we launch and its handy in case the weather breaks! Had it happen once, (never trust the weather man on tv!) I use the poole wind and tide cheaker now!!

Fantastic that you have got the original manufacturer's brochure. I wish that the prices were still the same for similar boats/engines/accessories these days!

Cheers,

Geoff :D :D :D

Pre-decimalisation, so prior to 1971.
