Well I'm gradually getting to grips with my SIB, and it's looking like the prop might not be right to give me the correct revs at WOT.
I'd like to find somewhere reasonably 'quiet' and calm to check out this theory and get used to the boat at higher speeds without having to look over my shoulder for Harbour Patrol RIBs.
Can anyone suggest good places to go? I'm thinking the Solent and Southampton Water are a bit too crowded until I've got my confidence in the boat up (or am I being a wuss?
). Poole Bay seems like a possibility, any one got any better suggestions, preferably not too far from Portsmouth? I've even looked inland at lakes, but the ones that allow powered craft seem to be waterski or jetski only.
Saundersfoot Bay over in Pembrokeshire is definitely on the to do list, but it's a bit far for a day out.
