It's a 3.1m Suzumar that Alan McKewan is selling me. He emailed me about it a few days ago, saying he wasn't in a rush to sell it so he could wait till I have the money for it, which I thought was terribly nice of him!

Not too sure yet, depends what's on offer on the second hand market once I've got the boat. Obviously I'd prefer a more powerful engine, but as long as I can get reasonable speed out of it, I'm not too fussed. Apparently it'll take up to 15hp.

Yup, just found the Suzuki website. They now sell a 3.2 and that takes up to 15hp. I can tell you that when we tried out Bill's 3.5 Avon with the 8hp engine (he brought of Dave today - yipeeee) it flew up the River Severn (don't tell the river patrol).

Remember that the 8hp will be lighter than a 15hp.

Here is Matt in his dreams after he has his SIB.....

Hah. They'd swim miles from the shore to be on a boat with me!

Bloody hell, make one suggestion about updating his profile and all I get in return is a load of insults eh?

But I admit, that was a slight exaggeration, they'd swim a maximum of about 800m, but not miles. Reason being I'd see em and make my way over myself

You should worry, I've got to put up with him for 10 days at the NEC from Thursday!
