Just bought a Zodiac Futura

Hey everyone, I'm an old fella (40+) that's deceided he want's to be young again so have just picked up a Zodiac Futura 2C HD with a Yamaha 30D outboard, having logged a couple of hundred hours on a RIB with an earlier generatioin of the same motor 20 years ago I have a slightly jaded idea of what I'm in for but can't wait to get on the water, break in the motor and have some fun.
