Hi, been browsing the forum for a few days - great source of info!

I've just bought a Honwave T3.8 ie Airdeck and until I get my Tohatsu 15hp OB will be using my trusty Parsun 9.8 4 stroke (never let me down & still in great condition after 3 years sea & Loch use)

I also have a Shetland 535 with a Mariner 60 EFi on the back, getting fed up with lost fishing time due to the good weather not coinciding with decent tide times (I do not launch at stupid o'clock for anyone!) this will now be used mainly for Loch and pleasure trips.

I've protected the airdeck with some heavy duty lino cut to size to prevent scuffing and potential hook damage.

Previous boats were. Waveline 2.9 sib (gave me the bug! then a fantastic 14ft Portabote with the Parsun on the tail. got rid when I bought the Shetland - big mistake but happy with the Honwave now.

Hope to be able to contribute here.

Cheers - Mike
