Thanks SloopJonB, I have seen that thread and the Nic's don't seem to have the same problem (although I still have plenty of others to sort out!!!!)

Yeah, the story I've gotten is that Fast Yachts redesigned/modified the floor grid specs vs what Nicholson was doing.. However with over 100 built and still going strong and being very popular down there they must still be OK...

Yoda - we're quite fond of our unique (around here) boat, and have nearly got her to the state we want after 9 years of use and upgrading. Does yours have the marinized VW engine?

Sorcecer was fitted with a Vetus M3.10 about 20 years ago which is a great engine. I have not yet struggled for power (only 20hp) and have no complaints about it. The control panel is a little tired but hope to sort that out this winter. In time I will investigate the fitting of a 'Halyard' aquadrive to help reduce vibration and noise.
