Hi we finally got to take real clients out yesterday, we saw the sights reculver the forts the seals hollow shore then raced back along the coast.
The boat was perfect since launch the only query has been the paddle not being calibrated. excellent to have been able to launch and trade! without hassles. My new crew chap has setled in well and the inaugral run went perfectly!
Tornado were right with the clients aboard she sits at excatly the right trim and when we go lighly loaded we use a water tank for ballast in the hull.
None of this really news but I was very chuffed to see happy (but cold customers) disembark. We supply coats and gloves but 5 clients arived in T shirts
My 4 year old waved us off and she seems keen to crew (later on though) the optis did a 2and a half hour run at 3700 -4100 rpm and burnt only 76 litres (there were a couple of stops) but two is definately better than one for me and the fuel bill after VAT/fuel duty of £22 for the tour is exceptional.
Cheers to John at Quincari for the tips,all bang on
