Pic from the Lakeland's Facebook page- I don't think they wanted anyone to miss the wheels! :lol:

Re wiring loom. Completely stands to reason when you think about. It travels on the floor of the boat and therefore why would you need to cut it when the intakes are off. Have we identified which wires were cut and then rejoined?

Our Checkie may be able to answer more fully, but off the top of my head I would say that it was the wire for the RPM gauge, which was separate to the main loom, and the wiring for the little fire extinguisher panel as well; I think that's the stuff you can see coming up from the left hand side and vanishing into the top of the intakes.

I believe Mike is right. My logic is that both the specific tachometer wiring for the Orpheus and that for the fire panel were added or modified in the 1966 rebuild and as such, it is unlikely they could have been inserted into the trunking, which was already well filled with the main wiring loom.
