..apart from the engine deciding to just stop just as we got to the Jolly Sailor and not want to restart for 40 mins

I think I must have has a gob of oil or water go through. Took the plugs out , drained the bowl etc, turn it over a few times, left it for a bit then with a cough & splutter off she went again and fine since. We have had this engine for 12 years and this was teh first time she skipped a beat!

Had a couple of kind offers for a tow back to Llanion but we got there under our own steam, well hydrocarbon oil......
(Only got one name..thanks Dan)

Not a bad place to break down

She planes easily with 2 adults.(14 + 10 st) 18 mph

With another 8 st you need to work it up onto the plane 16 mph

Over that its displacement only

One up she flies - yet to do a GPS speed check
