Ullswater - First run

Late to post but had my first run out the first May bank holiday.
Went to Ullswater, Park and launch was 4.50 at Park foot campsite.

3.1m Bombard AX5001
9.9hp Yamaha 4stroke

Had an issue where the outboard was dying of fuel starvation when brining the revs up, O-ring on fuel line to blame so just pottered about.
New line has arrived so hopefully no issues next time.

Welcome. I was also on Ulswater just after the bank holiday. We camped at Waterside House and launched from there.

It looks like Park Foot has a much more gentle a stone free launching area if that picture is where you launched from?

Nice boat the Bombard. Enjoy

Yes that is the launch site there. Couple of rocks to watch out for but no real issues, deeper towards the fence.
Plenty of parking and toilets etc nearby so is ideal.

Thank you, boat seems fine, well worth the 110 I paid, looking forward to next time with a properly functioning outboard.
