Finally on the water

We took my boat to Akureyri, north of Iceland where we had small boat show over the weekend and what a great time as I finally got to play around although did not manage to go WOT as still running in.

I have as can be seen above, not yet on WOT though, Ingi Bj÷rn my youngest one was allowed to drive her 50 MPH max on Sunday with his uncle beside (was his first time on boat)

I ran her 64 MPH and still have over 2000 RPM to WOT

We where driving back south (to Reykjavik) middle of night (pictures taken just after 2 AM) across three mountain roads in high density fog, so after the first one I decide to light up the nav lights and top light.

Our motorway (M1) is like your A road one line each direction.

Engine was bought last year so 300 was not available, am however thinking of having the 300 ECM, but question how much that will help as 300 has different gear ratio.
