Its a curious problem, the engine periodically stalls & won't restart. It turns over, but won't fire. As it is a 7 month old Honda so we are assuming that the engine is fine & that it is some sort of ignition problem in the wiring. The main suspect at the moment is the kill cord switch.

Thanks for that info. I'l try them.

Edit: Just heard that Martin has spoken to them already today and although they are not accredited yet to work on the Honda 225 they were really helpful.

Tonto is 1st class!!! He look after my 175 Honda.
Right then. Have spoken to the Resnova this morning and all ok to raft up where we can on Sunday. They may be busy so it might be an idea to get food ordered fairly early on.

I will be leaving Torbay/Brixham at about 11.00 ish. I will on channel 77 and 16. If anyone wants to meet off Berry Head at about 1115 let me know.

I will get a weekend forcast on Friday and post the basics up here.

FLY BY is Yellow Tubed and Navy hull and consoles. Orange strobe on the back makes it look like a hovercraft at night!!!

Forecast for Sunday is SE 4-5. Rain will move east in the morning, possibly heavy with thunder. Brighter weather may reach the west by the end of the day.

Looking at this it's not to good for us

I can put up with the rain but the Wind will make it hard to get around from Torbay to Dartmouth
Looking to stay on the river tonight if it stays nice although it's raining here now so might keep the boat there till Sunday

Have to have a look out Sunday first thing and see what it's doing
