It's difficult to take a 'Green' stance when you run a power boat for leisure purposes, which empties its oil into the sea.

Nah it's OK, 150 is quite sufficient for my needs, anything more would require packing several changes of underwear on a 5.8m and being able to scare myself %^&*less and still manage comfortably more than a mile on a litre of juice at 30 knots is just about the right compromise IMHO.

Odd for somebody who just admitted to owning a Seagull to be preaching on environmental issues too...
