George managed to get down to Littlehampton yesterday afternoon. Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond ones control Mike was unable to come so we did not get the opportunity of testing how the Parker 630 Diesel will cope towing a skier.

As I am no skier I will leave all comments to George.

George, it was great to meet you. A pity the weather was not the best, ie fog / mist and that due to the tide and time factor we could only manage 30 minutes.

MeMe your hat is safe.
I was certainly impressed with the brief run which Andre kindly arranged, and following that I finally managed a tug behind a diesel powered rig this weekend. I have to say it is slow in pulling out, and top speed is just sufficent for slaloming ,but the boats weight does compensate as there is no material loss of speed when crossing the wake. The set up was same as Andre's 1.7 mercrusier with 21'' stainless prop.
Not one for serious watersking buffs, but for an old crusier who still fancies the occasional scoot it's a good compromise.
Andre, many thanks for your time the other week, and if you decide on Scotland next summer, get in touch.
