Hia,


Last year I bought my first narrowboat,which has served me very well.



It has a 1937 Thornycroft RJ2 on board which I want to replace with a more modern engine. This is an enthusiasts engine and is now running well but frankly I don't have the time to truly work on it and appreciate it in all it's glory. There are apparently only 6 of them in the country and would love to hear from anyone who has a passion for Vintage engines.


I am in London now and eager to get the word out.


Thanks again.


Shane
