This unit is located on the west coast of Scotland. I checked to engine yesterday and it turns nicely after god knows how many years it has been in the Diabaig Pier store.

I don't have the time to try and renovate it and the owner has no desire to hang on to it so it will be going on E-bay tomorrow.

Anyone have any thoughts on any Museums or similar that may be interested in it?
