Hi Michael i only used the jet drive for one season as the lombardini 4.5 ph engine was not powerful enough also the internal petrol tank was to small and the other problem was the rubish in the canals kept blocking the jet unit but i gave it a go may bee a more modern jet  would work regards Viv.

Hi Michael  as you know the picture was taken at Retford and was the first meeting with 10 of use turning up for a very good weekend on
 my members list their were 28 owners of  caraboats but not all were in use they were all in different stages of resturation  some afloat some on dry land at that time any body with useful  or helpful tips rang  or wrote to  Malcome Wray who would then send out a news letter to all the members  including steel fabricators  ,industrial silicon sealant supplier etc, due  to the wright up in the canal river boat and my Water World  showing Mr Peter Orridge  phoned to tell me he worked in the caraboat factory from 1970 till close down in 1974  it was him that gave me the 2 boat show pictures which hung on the office wall at  caraboat ltd 6 Mansfied Road Sutton in Ashfield Nottingham i still have these pictures but gave copies to John and Neil  any way thats all for now regards Vic
