no way would I take mine out in a force 4 - as Pater and I said - fun only. That would be some horrible ride and any passengers with you would not thank you for that. I use mine around the Dart also. Have gone round to Salcombe several times but once got caught out when the weather turned F4'ish. It took hours to get back and quite frankly I would not do it again
I know Rib Shop said he has seen some cracking and I cant comment but mine has the max size motor and has now clocked quite a few hours up and its fine - feels very solid to me
get one for the right reasons and you will be very happy...
