Tried that as she walked through the door so told her I was about to make ultra thick condoms seeing how we already have 7 kids. Just made things worse!

That time it wouldn't rev? Something to do with the engine management system. It's a bloody good van! It's the LWB so you've got the two front seats and 2 rows of three seats and then a massive boot. But when she meets her mates at ASDA street cred comes into play

C-Craft were Dunlop
they were known as Dunlop C-Craft sports Boat/tenders.

For their length they were normally a bit bigger on the tube sizes than Avon.
And normaly faster as they were allowed bigger engines than the Avon of same length.

Loads of friends had c-craft boats in the early 70's.
All around 10ft with 20hp engines on the back ,and flying along the thames back waters
where the conservancy boats couldnt catch them.
In those days once you were on land they could touch you, and no police boats on upper
thames to catch you for speeding.ha ha ha

Even 6hp made them quick though.
Good strong boats, but for some strange reason Avon outsold them.
I think Avon had more accessories and a bigger outlet for their products.

Do not confuse C-Craft with the rubbish campari boats, i had one of those and they were real crap.
With a 6hp on 10 foot campari, you could open the throttle and fold the boat up ha ha
