I wonder if present day British manufactured cars, aside from Honda, still leak oil?

I know, a bit of a drift, but maybe TDW will allow it?

I guess a Spray would be a good example.

Even Joshua Slocum stated it wasn't exactly his first preference - but it was all he had available. ..and RKJ said the same about 'Suhali'.

Jeez, you don't have to get personal. I wasn't referring to your choice in women.Don't dis my dog neither.

Re: English Boatyard

Just wanted to show how personal is ones choice of boat,mate ,dog. I've been so fortunate in building the most beautiful vessel with the most beautiful woman in the world.I'm a cat person but two out of three's not bad. It's possible (just) that some others may not be in complete agreement but when the long trick's over some may say "class act" and they are entitled to their opinions. In the meantime the pride of building , ownership,neglect of vessels in the yard of no return can be a source of muse. Enjoyed the pics.

Nuthin' wrong with cats.. They can be better at chasing fish and beach-crabs than some dogs.

Re: English Boatyard

British vehicles might have their faults, but if there is a better combination to turn up at the boat ramp with, I have yet to see it :



The only problem was the hour I spent, on average, talking to people about the Wayfarer, and (occasionally) the Jag, every time I launched, and again when I got back to the ramp.

Well, my last American made car dealer used to tell me, "they all do that, it is not a problem". Every American made car that I owned, or worked on, leaked oil, which was minor compared to far more severe problems.

Of all the Japanese made cars, motorcycles, generators, outboards, and snowblowers I have owned or worked on, none leaked oil and they all worked perfectly.
