Get a Mitsubishi Ginger, you'll have a bigger laugh with Dales at Summercourt. Quoted me a 1000 for a new injector pump. Richards Bros. the Bosch guys at Redruth charged me 180 for a new anti-theft device on the back of the pump! Dales reckoned it came as one!!
Are you running a 19"P prop Roy? Your speed figures are similar to mine. Ah just read that it's a 21.

Anyway - the boat lapped up the waves with ease and it gave me great confidence to know that this boat will get me home even if I get caught out when the weather and conditions deteriorate.

No pics of the boat sorry it was far too wet and windy to get the camera out without a waterproof housing - We stopped to try and take a few pics of the sea - and this was the only non blurred one.

If the tide had been a little lower you'd have been able to see " Mollulnan" beach in this pic Roy

I can get a sensible car now that I don't trailer the boat any more

The boat is everything I hoped for, it is a great bit of kit, even Heidi likes it, and as you know if the wife is happy with a big boys toy then it must be good

Took the boat out again today - thought it was going to be another wet and windy day but to our surprise - it was great.

Dead flat waters made me wish I had the wakeboard with us but it did mean we could open up the throttle for a few more high speed runs - managed to squeak an extra 0.2 knots out of her today so we hit the magic 40 knot mark dead on 40.0 on the GPS.



This boat is really starting to put a very big grin on my face...

No it doesn't dry out! The beach between Carricknath (St.Mawes opp the Castle) and St. Anthony's lighthouse is Mollulnan. Been using it since I was a little kid. It gets a bit busy these days as there are so many more boat owners.
