First good day of the year

Got my sib out for the first time this season. Wanted to give it a good clean ready for another season on my inland waterways. Cleaned her up and started engine in water and started second pull. Just like to say another big thanks to paddlers and Bartiny the boat and engine are still good and ready for another season. 😄

I went out for the first time this year saturday, good high tide in Abergele, boat ran as good as it can(I hate the air floor) and engine ran great, water was a bit chilly and lumpy, but great fun.

Which Bombard? What's the particular issue with the floor?

Cheers for that "tooter", told you it was a good engine

The Mercury 9.8 has gone (sorry), I was made an offer that I could not refuse

Also just sold my Humber SIB and my Mariner 25hp, again an offer too good to refuse

I have given up boating and moved on to pastures new involving 4 wheels and alot of fun more suited for what I need.

Good luck

Pump more air into it and the keel. Mine was junk untill I called the distributor and he agreed and recommended no air gauge, pump e'm until there are hard. Made a complete different expearance for me.
