Looks really good.

Re the mention of your Humber being smoother possibly, to some extent in a small sea it might be. The destroyer has less chines so cuts through the waves more, but isn't so dry and doesn't get out of the hole as easy as the OP or your new toy.

Enjoy, scenery looks awesome too, v jealous.

I think the oil for the E-tec is now HPF-XR, not sure if you can use the older stuff (don't see why not though).


Oh and CONGRATULATIONS, Nice Rib !!!

They add extra oil for the first 2 hours of running over 2000 RPMs. which for the average user is about 4-5 hours of total running time

Now where's my anorak...
