Help, I need a surgeon - -

To remove the silly grin from my face!

Took my Honwave 3.8ie out for a spin from Montrose to give my new to me 15hp Mariner a run. Bloody hell - straight on the plane and off like a shot

Went out through the usual rough stuff at the estuary mouth into a mixed swell of 1mtr from varying directions, jumped a couple of swells a 1st for me.
Went round the outer channel marker buoy and came back in. Couldn't resist a few speed runs at WOT just short of the Harbour speed restrictions. A bit of chine walking at speed so need to kick the leg out one notch next time.
Nice dry run, no transom splash into boat. Great fun.

Now all I need is my new tow car to arrive to get the Smartwave 480 out to get the new Yam 60 run in. Just about all boating options covered now.

Yep 2 stroke. Purchased from SamT on this forum. pleasure to deal with and outboard better than described IMO.
Just missed out on a Tohatsu 18 the morning I spotted his ad here and jumped in quick

Pity I was too busy hanging on to take any pics today
