I am coming round to the idea of taking the boat out this winter (28' Sterling Sabre) and spending some time refurbishing her inside and out and sort out thos little niggly jobs, I have full workshop facilities back home so it makes sense to take the time to do it. I have a couple of questions that I would appreciate anyone's opinion on:-

1] It has a bmc 1.5 in her at the moment that is showing and sounding like it could do with some time/money spent on it. Would it be worth overhauling this engine or is there another make of engine I could look to replace it with. If overhaul is the option to go with then are parts like gasket sets and rings still easily obtainable.

2] I have the facilities to repair and respray the outside in our spraybooth. Any advice as to whether normal 2-pack truck paint would be suitable for the top side and also a supplier/ application methods for the anti-foul for the underside.

3] Any ideas of costing advice on transporting: have been quoted £450 + VAT from Horning to Colchester plus £120 lift out. Does this seem a fair price??
