I have also attached a normal tripod head to the clamp, which gives complete control over any of the 3 axis.
Well I do hope they are as good as your advert!! I have just order the clamp and the camers thingy.

Thanks dood - It's the smaller brother: SR4.7/Twatsoo 60
(Twatsoo since swapped for a Merc F50: thought I should give this 4-stroke malarkey a try )

And...has a ruined ride and reduction in fuel economy resulted from this most despicable change?

Compared with the Twatsoo, the Merc uses 60% of the fuel, when running around/cruising at 28ish kts, weighs about the same, a bit quieter (not much), acceleration/response is roughly the same and top end is down by 1kt, although I haven't finished experimenting with props yet.

Early days, but so far, a lot better all round than I expected - think I'll keep it.

Another enlightened 4-stroke owner, good to have you join the realms. Gotchi will see the error of his ways one day (and might even overcome his preconceptions with a little more medication - I'm sure the fumes of unburnt hydrocarbons will soften him with time)
