Big old, green nasty, sh*t ya pants, bl**dy great rolling b*strd big waves!
The back is better today.......my arms still ache from holding on for dear life, but the back has sorted itself out.....caused mainly by falling off the back of the said waves above. When you have 12 miles of them every six seconds it can get a bit monotonous to say the least especially after standing up for 4 hours!
I'm not the nipper I used to be.......I make noises and stuff when I lean over to get something!
The opti is superb though and my mates thought it was 4 stroke (without looking at it of course) by the sound at idle and full throttle. I also seem to have found a sweet patch at around 3750rpm where the noise drops enough to be able to chat without raising my voice and pulling a good 38knts.
Around 30-35knts you'd be forgiven for thinking you were trundling along at 15knts.......it's very deceptive. Anyway the boss is looking at me funny, which in itself is not highly unusual......normally means he's got work for me and I'd like to be away from my desk when that happens!!!
