Hold off on the bigger prop until you load ALL your crap into the boat. And actually FILL the tank this time...

I was actually running it on portables today so I can put the exact amount of fuel in a tank and test it. I loaded the boat with everything I would usually carry, an extra person, extra fuel, aux engine, anchor, chain and warp.


Its now back on the main tank. It always hurts filling that one.

Jaysus - that was gone quicker than a quick thing!

Unfortunately, orange shoe polish is hard to find...

Put it on Gumtree on Friday afternoon and it was sold by Saturday evening.

9 email enquiries and 3 offers in 24hrs.

You may ridicule me about the red dye but I used it on tubes then 303'd them afterwards, never touched them again.

Mind you, they did look "raw" as you say.
