Easter Cruise Pwllheli - Bardsey

We had a good day out on Sunday, the first after our slight fuel problem and subsequent engine service. It was good to meet on the water and bring our friends.
Sean's godfather Colin and wife Rosie joined Patsy and me on Hawkeye for an excellent time (once we had remembered to put the "bung" in!!)

The massive 250 Engine sounded really quiet in contrast to my 2 stroke until I realised that....

It had stopped!!!

Something to do with ......

Running out of Fuel

I'm an expert at that now of course!

It probably had something to do with the recent service, but if the latest fuel consumpion rate continues then Ian will have to consider a new setup ...
