The short term employment issue has been resolved! (hooray!!!!!!)
So, now its time to get on with the engine.... prices have been gathered, and i'm pretty sure which way I am going now.... I just need to bite my tongue, and place the order.
The other challenge is time to fit it. While I could definitely save a few quid by doing it myself, I am seriously considering asking the yard to do it, as I am time poor.... It just depends upon how much, and whether I can still work it to get into the empty engine compartment to get it cleaned and painted between removal and refit.
Next however on my list, is finishing the mast work, so that it can be restepped.
