Hi Chris
Unfortunately I still have outboard problems I tested it this morning and the throttle is still sticking, I am taking the RiB back to Robin Curnow this morning so they can look at it next week, I am afraid I have to cancel today’s trip

Sorry hopefully we can rearrange for another weekend, once I get the outboard sorted.

That's fine Shaggy. Esther was looking at the weather with a less than enthusiastic look on her face. It would be good to sort something before the end of the summer. Maybe Roy will have sorted out an egg-whisk to go on the back of his dinghy by then :-)
Not wishing to diss Robin Curnow (I'm a Penryn boy), They couldn't look at my opti for two weeks. I dragged it up to Rock Marine Services who are authorised Opti dealers. All done the next day, well efficient and trusted me to put the bill in the post. Not received it yet, so watch this space.

Back from Ireland managed to squeeze in a great day meeting the chaps from Redbay, very professional and friendly bunch up there.

Getting my Rib back from the docs tomorrow apparently the fuel line was pressing down on the throttle cable etc causing it too stick..

Well I guess Ill find out tomorrow is anyone around to give me a tow
