Safari Mk2 Control Cable Lengths
Does anyone know the lengths of the throttle and gear control cables of  the Hampton Safari 25 MK2  (BMC thornycroft 1500cc engine with Morse  control lever)?
Hampton Safari Moulds for Fibreglass Front Windscreens
Rumour has it that there were/are some moulds that were used to manufacture front windscreen in fibreglass. We think that TopCraft has a set but think these were destroyed when the company closed down. Does anyone know the whereabouts of any others and, if possible some contact details?
Cable Steering System Adjustment
We have an owner based in France who would like to know how to adjust the slack in the steering system for a Safari 25 mark II. It has a Swedish made mark II cable steering system....can anyone provide a pointer to a useful guide, docs or helpful hints/tips?
Owner with Safari in France wants to trace UK history...
Frits who owns Cavalier moored on the Canal Du Midi has identified his old Broads registration as H745. Unfortunately there is little or no information in the usual sources so we are casting the net among readers of our website to ask if anyone can shed any light on the past history of H745 either on, or since it left, the Norfolk Broads waterways....please use the contact form to update us initially.
