Youtube and I have been fighting all day over this one, but for anyone interested vaguely in seeing Bristol Harbour and my bald spot, here's a short precis of our adventure Monday evening.
On an ironic note, after we'd got back to base, I checked the fuel level in the outboard and noticed we were about two teaspoons away from breaking out the oars. Our previous couple of outings having been on the 4mph canal and river system, and I had started to think we could be the proud owners of an infinitely refilling fuel tank as we seemed to use so little petrol and could spend a good couple of hours plus out on the canal without worrying about go juice.
Funnily enough, it turns out that if you turn up the revs, you chew through the gas. I never would have thought :-)
On a serious note, if we don't kit ourselves up with an external fuel tank, we're faced with doing a refuel from the placcy 5 litre can on the water. This doesn't feel intuitively safe to me - but am I being a bit over cautious ??
