I agree its a great little boat , we didn't get out of the boats all day 10 till 5 even ate lunch at anchor so i shouldn't complain about the comfort .

I get an aching neck from sitting sideways on the tube steering with my left hand and holding on with the right . If its calm its fine because you don't need to hang on .

iam thinking the boat could be fun with a mariner 30 or similar , I was told 20hp was the max for it but i notice on the transome it says 25hp max so a mariner 30 is the same engine I believe ? .

err - where are the seals - none in the pictures ???

i was on the south coast all weekend - left the boat in the marina on sat night...

It was pretty grey all day - and the wakeboarding wasn't even that good due to a stiff southerly breeze.

Best bit of the day was Luke got up on water skis

Hi roy , we only saw a few seals and all in the water as it was too rough for them on the rocks .
That area where iam in Bobs pic is the seal hole , its even marked on the os map .

We went up the bay a little furthar for half an hour and by the time we got back the swell was really ariving in big sets
