First weekend out

This weekend we took the boat up to Nefyn in north Wales where she will now stay. A couple of friends came with us and couldn't believe that when I said we were bringing the boat and it was in the back of the Disco and not on a trailer. She was soon inflated and put on the water for her first test, a trip round to the next bay and the pub!! It coped really well with four of us and two dogs, although the sea being like a mill pond helped. Hopefully here are a few pics

What a great first day out, the dog seems to give discerning approval.. Looked back at the eBay ad for the outfit you bought, a good deal!

Great pics... you really had a fantastic buy there... with that desirable engine in particular. Nice weather for a first trip too.

Did the Tohatsu plane 4 up plus dogs? I looked into a cheeky grey import of one a few months ago just prior to buying my Suzuki 20 as they are a motor I've admired for years.

Yes we did get it up on the plane although it was a little slow getting there, with 3 up it was very snappy. Very impressed with it all so far and looking forward to the next outing
