It's one small step above a Topper dinghy with a 25 on the back. Then add the fact that the engine is so old the phrase "kill cord" was still a future concept when it was built, so I've already had to "break in" to the ignition system to even just get a working kill switch.
Hence being slightly more interested in a working deaman on said craft than my usual steed!
Oh, and with ai ignition related signal I also toyed with using it to feed a tacho of some description, so why not use the deadman cable and you have a "free" safety system check.
