But its only a recue device so should always get you away from the rocks.
Can't wait to try mine.
Hope your sea trialling goes well.
I have trialled it in the rough rolling chop a few days ago.
Didn't feel confident having one hand on a camera phone to film it though.
Nowhere near being swamped with water.
The engine is mounted higher than top of the tube so if engine gets dipped the tube will need to be submerged - so a wet engine will be the least of my worries.
It did require a bit more work with the tiller and throttle to get to where I wanted to get to.
It ain't pretty but it's better than a set of oars lol!
