Apologies from newby

Good afternoon,

I found this forum extremely helpful and useful thank you to everyone who has helped me get kit and choose right sib motor,

I have returned a Honda ob and got a Suzuki, must say dealer I originally bought the Honda form was amazing , very helpful. I will be nominating them for a customer care award.

Yes Mrs a lawyer I am not a project manager so have I have no idea of doing anything just get credit for other folk doing a good job.

I did get heated at some comments from folk which I did over react , apology for this as I am a hot headed ex rugby player.

Once again thank you all for constructive help and wish all (including folk who pressed the right buttons) happy and safe sib/rib / boating etc

Cya

Fair play, stick around it’s worth it. There’s a lot of banter on here, much like you’d get in a rugby club. You’ll get used to it.

Don't take it to heart mate the pi$$ taking always starts this time of year I put it down to lack of boating over the winter months folks need a fix and vent frustration when chink in the armour of others is available to prod. You'll soon get the boat wet focus on that happy boating and don't forget the pics

Yeay we may get to see those pics after all!

Great to have you back Cumbria. To your credit you've had a great approach asking for info to make sure you get the right boat and engine. I failed miserably at this hurdle. You also realise the wisdom of getting the correct safety gear which could well save you and yours one day. A lot of people minimize risks for whatever reason. Apology further shows you're a modest guy.

Glad you’re on the right track now.

It’s a steep learning curve! But you’re getting there. I take it you got a Suzuki 20hp?

Hopefully we’ll see you on one of the sib outings later this year.
