Hi from London

Hello all,

We did our coastal powerboat licences in a RIB 5 years ago and have just bought our first boat - Bombard Explorer SB500 with Yamaha F50 motor. We've been out on the Thames a few times - slow, but very relaxing - and last Saturday we went out in the Solent for the day - ended up on the Isle of Wight! I think that was the best fun I've had in years, and I ride sportsbikes!
Anyway, this seems to be a friendly and knowledgeable forum so hopefully I can learn lots from you.
