Nice reef outside Tywyn great place for Bass fishing

Calm down Calm down HP, only to be expected... peeps put there names down with good intent and things do crop up unexpectedly. There will certainly be more ribs this year than last, so a positive result.

Indeed Captain.

Just booked our mooring to be laid, ordered a new aerial (snapped when my dad reversed it under a shelter ). Replacing console hinge which lost a pin and resealing the new elephant trunk collar (which now doesn't poke below the waterline).

Then it's anti foul and off for dewinterising ready for the season.

Think you'll find that's for servicing, not winterising.

Plus you paid the same in costs for servicing the opti on the raised purchase price. However getting it serviced means it's hooked up to a computer and readouts analysed, then the engine checked by a qualified engineer each year. Better IMHO.

You're both wrong better with an olde 2 stroke lump, well serviced! Gives you a good old grunt and shove and does not go into 'safe' mode just when you need it the most. Oh and the noise it just heaven
