We have disabled the online payment facility on our website, due to being unable to currently supply D R Mercer engines. We have a big list of people in line for when ever production starts again...

You can still add items to basket and add up total costs etc.. its just the checkout message will pop saying to give us a shout. So if there are and parts you require feel free to get in touch, we still supply a number of accessories & have limited spares too. We are still here and hope to add to the website very soon with new, exciting items & services.
