New Boat (Arancia)

Finally fitted an engine to the new (to us sib). It took a while to find a 25/30hp engine around. They seem to be in high demand!!!

It's an old lifesaving club Arancia sib fitted to a 2 stroke 30 hp Merc (probably mid 90's vintage). We paced it with the 7m and clocked it at 29 mph. Plenty fast for that little thing!!! We stayed on the bay since it was the first time out with it (Mission Bay, San Diego, CA, USA). Gorgeous Saturday afternoon!!!
