I know it's not everyone's taste, but I'm really happy to have found this and have it reunited with its builder!

That’s a really lovely story. After my first mini died I bought a marina 1800 TC off a widow. I found loads of tools in the boot and took them back to the lady. She said no keep them you’ll get some use out of them and it’s what he would’ve wanted. I still use some of the tools nowadays 30 years later.

Well done Jeroen.
