Compared to what it sees as you blat along at a huge rate of knots, it's hardly under strain!

Agree with the drainage tho'.

Mine is stored down, but that's only because it won't fit the garage if I leave it up! My old SR4 was stored engine up for the very reasons you cite.

Hi 9D280, I agree with that. I had a word with my local Yamaha dealer today and was told that providing the outboard is lifted and then gently brought back down onto the locking pin as for transit then nothing is under strain.

I've taken the brake pads off mine - as it's only used as a launching trailer nowadays, and they used to stick every time it was left for more than 2 minutes. But if anyone does take it, the first roundabout will be very exciting......

As mentioned, there's an open invite with free camping if someone would like to put it together. Fal is a top, top destination if you can manage a longish tow.

BDJim does it a the drop of a hat.

Ok, I'll step into the breech again as I've been sorely lax on this lately.

I reckon Mollers' offer is a really good one, but I'm slightly concerned about the distance and possible destinations from Falmouth for the smaller Seariders. Thoughts on that?


How does weekend of the 25th Sptember sound to people?

I've stuck in in a new thread here:-
