Was thinking ' thats not wet' - right up till 1.37 ! Very nice vid. What was in the boat at the end - must be octopus , mermaid , fish ? It looks very interesting !

Great stuff.

Well you can't expect anything different in a BananaShark.

According to Kev (kitten) it's the wettest boat he's ever been in

Yeah well it was Pi***ng with rain.
Anyway talk about any excuse to have a pop, that was a Cougar
Hey Lewy, I stuffed your boat so well one day that we tore the flag of the A frame and filled the boat to the top of the tubes with water, even moved the wind deflectors on the consoles back, but she kept going and we were fine (if a little damp)> Testing eh? what fun?

nice one Kitten!! as you say stuffing is the problem but i've learned to control the foot pedal so well now that it rarely happens.

Trouble is, the bloody boat just insists on being pushed and pushed. She just dont wanna go at sensible speeds.
