I'm not in a position yet to consider this meet ( not got my SIB yet), but it's good to see such things happen.. but would a small 3.1m SIB with 6hp be suitable for a meet like this?? or would it be scoffed at by the big-engine boys?

Us big boys with our mighty 15hp outboards?

It's a big, fast river with a fair bit of large traffic in places and something like 10-15hp and a slightly bigger boat would be preferable. You'd probably get away with it though provided you don't load the boat too much.

Like guernseylee says though, we'll make sure everyone is OK and can tailor the day to suit everyone.
