Prior commitments this weekend prevent me from being there but have a good one - lets try and arrange a SE RIBster new year cruise? What speed are you getting now Richard?
Daniel ....good idea a new year cruise would be good to blow the cobwebs away, the past few weeks have been great out, flat calm and no wind, we even did a night cruise around the island which was great getting back to HB around 6pm
I'm getting about 35 knots from the new engine, i thinks it the maximum for the hull shape as when its flat calm with just me on board at 35 knots it gets a bit twitchy as there's not much hull actually touching the water
The fuel saving is fenominal its costing me about £10 to go out around the island and back again where the old 2 stroke was costing me £25 easilly, i've got an interesting story to tell you about the new engine but it will have to wait till i see you though
