I don't know where you you got that the Americans told you don't do it (I can't see where everyone is from on the mobile app) but just do it and be light on the throttle (and wear the kill cord!)

Not sure on centimeters, but I am chunky. I am also very handsome and I have perfect teeth; attributes I am certain you lack. If you want to start hazing, I have no problem leaving. I am only here for friendship and information, thank you.

I'd say you'll have loads a fun with that power on such a light rig, which could easily bounce you out in a small chop, so wearing kill cord is essential to insure continued fun, I overpowered a similar size sib with 25hp and that was scary but 15hp should be cool.

I am going to disregard the advice of everyone else and go with dragonhawk. Thank you all for your well-meaning input. I am also going to disregard the American 's advise against having a 15 hp. I am not tempting fate, and I will be careful when throttling, but ejecting 250 pounds from a forward seat will take one hell of a 15 hp engine.

Sorry dude, but I'm a real looker, so much for your guesswork

That as really friendly hazing (in among giving you good advice, IMO) - we call it banter and there's quite a bit of it on here. Generally (unless you're from Yorkshire) it's meant well and just a bit of fun. I'd suggest you stay and enjoy the forum, but grow a thicker skin
