Here at last.

Picked up the boat on Saturday.

First Launch on Sunday, managed to put 3.3hrs on the engine and travel 14.4nm.

The launch and recovery seemed to go okay, I don't think we embarassed ourselves.

Great looking boat. Hope you have loads of fun.

By the way, try opening the throttle a bit more next time, im sure it'l go faster than that

Good luck
Dave

Clarky,

It was only that slow because we are still running the engine in. Only 0.7 hours to go and then we can use full throttle (but only for 5 minutes at a time)

New Humber

A very nice outfit,

Did you deal with Humber direct? What was the final Spec Ordered? How did the contract go ? Was it delivered on Time?Would you recommend Humber to Others?


Sorry for all the questions but I have good reason perhaps a PM would be preferable if you do not want to discus in public.

Regards
Kevin
