Thanks Vaughan very interesting indeed and how boring must the 4107 have seemed in comparison(if a little easier to maintain perhaps?).
By 'Blown air scavenging' are we talking proper supercharging with positive boost pressure or something a little more gentle? Having looked at the pics I can't quite decide exactly what is what.
When she was up for sale recently she sat for quite some time slowly deteriorating(not seriously but varnishwork starting to dull etc) and I found myself getting drawn in closer n closer as the asking price slowly crept down(it didn't help that I could see her from my mooring), finally reaching almost affordable levels but in the end whilst many aspects of the re-fit would have been within my capabilities doing proper justice to any woodwork required would not and I feared that I would've ended up ruining her, so it was quite a relief to see her sell and some work begin although I'm not sure where she is now.
Incidently when for sale she was listed with a new Nanni of some sort.
