Iam as surprised as you . I really did expect it to be a bit of a handfull.
I have been out around Rame Head this evening and tried it in some chop and smallish rolling swell. hitting waves and bouncing about at cruising speeds its ok . I reckon if I drove it hard in that sort of sea then its going to get a little more challenging and maybe need some sort of damper , but i don't think my body will stick too much of that anyway
I think just a bungee on the tiller will be enough
I sit on the tube most of the time , but the boat is just the right width to wedge yourself in sat on the floor .
It was just me and my daughter in the boat tonight so it was very light and we cruised at a steady 3500 rpm ish ( still running in ) the best bit was we used about £8 of fuel for a trip that was costing me about £30 before .
I will try and sort some pics somehow , ---Bob
