Glad you all had a good time. Nice to see piccies.

I see Daniel's fridge was well stocked in the last piccie.

Hey, Phil, have you got enough sponsorship there? Looks like you got a bit wet at times.

New boat looks very nice, Peter. Enjoy.

Valiant groupies Wayne and Daniel TD5 on the pontoon at Levington. Nearest is Wayne's brand new Valiant PT520 with, yes you've guessed, an Evinrude Ficht 90. The rivers of Suffolk echoed all afternoon with the gloriously throaty wail of Ficht engines which I can only liken to the exhaust note of a Ferrari 360 at full chat - quite the most superb sounding outboards on the market

Not my Searider, Louise, just testing Steve's! Wanted to see how it went with a 40hp on the back. Better than mine is the obvious answer

Wayne's new baby tops out at just on 50mph but it's the way it gets there that's really impressive. That Evinrude just flies, in total contrast to the Mariner 90 4-stroke that he just got rid of.

Nice looking package you have there Wayne and wish you all the best, I agree with you Phil the sound of the FICHT´s is a good rythm (have sold few big one in the past (OMC´s time) and I wanted to throw my engine overboard to justify one FICHT for myself)

Just a few more.I really thought little Bethany had gone for a swim when she fell off my jockey seat I looked round and she had gone.Everything was OK she was doing athletics on the decking with a huge smile across her face,Bless her heart.I had a good look for her as you can see on the first photo.
