Extreme Sibbing at the top of the Thames.

Cutting the trees isn't an option-there's a whole winters worth of debris piled up against them.

SIBs used-
Mine-Seago 285 with Yamaha 8hp 2stroke,
Whisper's H2O 2.4m with Honda 2hp/ Suzuki DT2.2.

Surprisingly, it was far easier in the Seago with 8hp as the keel seems to make it way more controllable and the Yam has a shallow drive setting that barely touched the bottom at all compared with Whispers.

However, if the start had been much worse with blockages, the trade-off with the extra weight wouldn't have been worth it.
