Thanks for Help

Hi
Got a new toy, (5.5 humber Destroyer)but weather against me last weekend. Played on the side of caution and will try out when i can.
Everybody say it looks good, and I have been a trial run in it with x owner H Andy.
Sorry to see 4metre Narwhal go, myself and girlfriend Lynne did a lot of trips around North Wales including all the way around Anglesey in 5 hours mixed conditions 85 miles, this year.
I know it looks a lot more impressive faster smoother, but I do ask myself will I miss my little Rufty tufty Narwhal.
Has anybody else had similar doubts?.
I did have a lot of help and guidance in my up grade (some of it use full lol ) Steve Topbannana and his side kick Tony Wave runner are great for wind ups and a laugh did throw in some technical knowledge as well thanks
Jono Garton of www.professional-powerboat-training.co.uk was a great help and lastly H Andy Hughes Marine engineer who was willing and helpful on every part of the sale
Thanks Stuart Law
Stul

Yes but with the humber, you can now take it off the trailer and drive the boat round in about three hours.
