Hello From York

Just wanted to say a little hello and give a little intro to all of you (before i start asking idiotic questions )

I'ts been a fair few years since I've owned a boat but I've just bought an Avon Seasport S3.45 with a 40Hp mariner 2 stroke (recoil start/ manual lift. no batteries to faff about with) on the transom (yes i know, slightly over engined). I bought of a chap who by trade is a marine engineer and has had the transom reinforced heavily so will be fine if a little erm, lively.

Yet to get it in the drink (sorting a few bits out first like the basics of getting paddles, Anchor and giving the engine a service and so on). peace of mind and all that. better to sort out now than off Scarborough radioing the coastguard. lol

Like I said, I've have boats before (all small). started off with a Newbourne Colt sport with 25hp suzuki then an Avon 4m Searider with 45Hp merc and lastly (before the ex wife did here thing) a Fletcher Arrowflyte with 75hp merc. since then it's just been me and my motorbike.

Anywho, I'm back ready to scuttle around the river Ouse and east coast hopefully with a stupid grin on my chops.

Hi and welcome. Don't worry about getting responses it happens to be a little quieter on forum at present. Just keep posting either originator or responder and enjoy. It's like a lot of things the more you put in the more you will get back.

If you're insecure, neurotic and a bit "chippy" then I'd say you'll blend in nicely...
