Hi Daz.


Stunning photographs.
Love colour.
Looks very well put together. Pity I won't be running my Mercury against it tomorrow, but the weather forecast is crap.


Hope to see it at Nottingham in three weeks time.

I second the above :-))
35 years ago (showing my age O0 ) I had a K&B 40 engine on a gear box in an Omega 40 boat all from Dave Marles. That engine at the time was reputed to be the most powerful out of the box marine engine of its size available at that time. And boy did it have power and massive acceleration, coupled with a Prestwich Pipe of course! That photo Kurt of your larger K&B has so many similarities to the one I owned all those years ago, so it brings back many happy memories for me :-)


And nice to see the Zen7 which is a cracking good engine! I bet it will serve you well :-))

i still have a k&b 40 mate,,, :-))  and you are rite they go really well,i would even say that they would still give some of the most modern engines a run for there money :-))
