Hello, grammar is not my strong point, but put me in thick category at your peril !!! . Friendly family man and easy to chat to. I have Just purchased a Zodiac rib for doing a spot of cove hopping in Cornwall and as I tow a caravan I thought a rib would be ideal (not sure if the law allows you to tow a caravan and speedboat at the same time you understand ) . This year will be an exercise of trial and error as I only intend to put to sea if the seas are calm and I know some great spots when the weather plays ball. I suspect the outboard I have (3.5hp mercury 2 stroke) will be seriously under powered and that a 15hp unit would be more suited to the job in the sea at any rate.
Any advice you can offer would be welcome and if you need to know where said nice spots in Cornwall are I'm your go to man as me and my family have spent many years holidaying in Cornwall and in fact despite living in the Caribbean for several years Cornwall is still my favourite place on earth.
All the Best.
