Last trip for 2010 with the SR ?

Considering the weather forecasts for the weekend, here in the south close to zero and in the north already about -10, took Friday off and went out with the SR.

As a not so early bird, had here fueled and trailered to the water ready for run only at noon. Handling the trailer alone was not that bad. Crisp clear weather, roundabout +4C, almost none wind. Target to do a 33 NM trip to one of my favorite islands, quick sandwich lunch and back before sunset 16:15.

Fueled 95 L of 98E, good to have some safety margin in case sudden weather change. Measured later the consumption, did use abt 54 liter. Engine idles now smooth after the carb sync/adjuste service(at only 75 eur ).

Everything went briliant, had the entire sea for my own usage. Due to old swell, did not berth on the intended iseland, the cliff was too slipery, wont take chances in November, but found another place. The camera batteries did not like the temperature, also the spair set died so not that good fotage or video. Anyway picturing/videoing under way is not that easy. Best face picture from me ever, only 3 % vissible

Due to a mistake purchased goggles with sun filter, but driving against a low altitude sun they worked fine, but for dusk would prefer clear ones.

In the sheltered parts did about 29 knots on 4500 rpm( wot is 5500 +-) but on the open water legs did have to slow down slightly. Great boat the SR, responsive and would not swap the 90hp for a smaller one. Smile factor for the trip 10+


A few pictures and a short video, sorry for quality, its hard to film and helm simultaneously.

Think the timing was about right, no fun ribbing now. Guess what's hidden under the snow...

Got busted with the duct tape there. But You ain't see nothing yet!

Here the register plate, plastic coated cardboard fastened with a stylish grey ......tape.
Please also note the carefully produced letters. Worst ever i guess, but it was a 5 minutes temporary job both sides included. Still worked well for 2 months. Seams like duct tape attaches unusually well to a SR? However, strongly considering a upgrade for 2011
