That is not as daft as it sounds, I am coming down to the South Coast with someone who wants me to give a boat the once over before he buys it. Difference is he is paying. ;)

The tea bags are tempting though. :D

I would have a look at the solenoid on your starter motor. They have a couple of copper wedges inside them that get burnt and corroded. If you can get into them they will clean up with emery or a fine file. A way of testing is to use a jump lead from the battery direct to the terminal that connects the heavy lead to the starter. If it spins normally the solenoid is duff.

He has got loads of money but he didn't get it by overpaying people. I would like to meet up but unfortunately it is gong to be a long enough day without diversions. 6 hour drive each way.

Try both but it is unlikely to be the earth. More likely the power side.
