Place the engine face down, with the prop down and lift with the carrying handle. You (I) can manage it with one person and two can carry it easily.

15hp is the max for the 3.4 Quicksilver.

Actually, Nghost, I am surprised that Keith can remember as far back as him having to carry anything!.
Keith stopped being a SERIOUS sibster, like you, some time ago when he purchased a trailer.
Now all he does all day is lust over photos of slipways on

Erm, Nghost, is it possible to call you by a more humanoid name? Your moniker always reminds me of a dish on my local curry house takeaway menu for some reason?

I'm serious about Sibbing, but I was never a SERIOUS sibber

I may look out for a 15 that I can carry

Call me Nigel (its my name) Nigel's Ghost (nghost) is the psudonim that I use for the web. Never thought of rogan

Ah yes I remember slipways there is always someone telling you "you cant park there" as you slip your disks faster than you slip the boat.

Light boats that can be lauched over the sand or dropped in from a low bank/key thats the way.
I do fansy a small rib though

Nigel,

Excellent account of your mini-epic. I went around the island a couple of weeks ago in a 6.5m RIB and felt felt a little glow of satisfaction... Hah, you've shown me up as a softie now!

A friend of mine has a 2nd hand 2-stroke 15hp he wants to sell. VGC very low hours. Only catch is that it's in Devon, but I visit often. Let me know if any interest?

Richard.

Its a bit like that add for chips : "what do you prefer Daddy or chips" but "ribs or sibs".

Forgot to say, the Cuddy realy keeps the spray down, and is great for launching through surf. (as long as the boat is facing INTO the waves)

On our IOW trip we stopped in freshwater for a bladder stop.
and swamped the boat when going through the surf.
We bailed the stuff above the airdeck and pulled the bung at the back to let the water out under the airdeck. we could not plane untill we empted all the water out, that took 15 minutes.

This is Ray at Shanklin (the owner of Grey Slug 2) on our trip.
