Well boys and girls went out last night in langstone harbour, pretty choppy as you can imagine! - some fairly sizeable rollers actually coming in through the harbour mouth which was quite fun actually
The only set back was down to my own stupidity, (I'm going to get ripped in too for this im sure
) I've rigged the sterring cable the wrong way round, so turning left at the wheel actaully turns the boat right and vice versa - very hard to get your head around! Im amazed I didnt crash the subaru on the way home! -
SO my next questions is can I rig the cable through the helm the other way does anyone know please? I'm buggered if Im taking the engine off again just so I can move the steering cable, I think the reason I did it was becasue it was quite long and one side was harder to get in as it fouled the tube even when deflated and there not much flex - such a school boy error!
I went out really for 2 reasons,
1. to help a friend move his sailing boat to another mooring - (which amazingly we did without too much grief with current steering issue!)
2. FOr me to experience the Sr5, it certainly retains the sr4 characteristics in a amazing way just a lot bigger/sure footed, really like it - I want a 90 or bigger now tho, I gave it a little blip just briefly in the water ski area just for testing
Couple of pics to follow, looks better in the water
