this is how we help the boat that was on fire

channel 16
an mayday from the ferry
boat on fire
the guy was filling his tank on the water just outside the harbour while his wife was smoking
tank on fire
what do you think he did
go in the harbour and jump out of the boat
we where close by with our rib
and arivved in 5 minuts boat WAS IN BIG FLAMES
this is the way we get out the flames

ps don`t try this unless you have low water pickup and water pressure gauges

boat tornado 6.5 wit 2.5 merc 260 hp cmc powerlift topspeed 57 knots

That sort of comment is what I would expect of an ex yeller leg. Considering the fact that I'm moving your boat through the narrow lanes of Somerset tomorrow, I would question the wisdom of it. especially as, in the past few days, I've been held responsible for killing a trailer, breaking Jaspers toes and broken probably the toughest boat in the Solent. Be careful. I'm on a run.

new type cmc lift works fine

new type cmc powerlift works fine
and handy when you come in shallow waters
and in big seas you can put him down
raise him till you get good fuel economie and speed

we use trophy plus fourblade prop this is holding good grip in surface
propping

be sure the transom of your boat is strong enough before you put one on

the boat is getting more weight on the back
for this tornado that is ok because of the jockey seat far in front

greetings menno from the netherlands
sorry for bad english
