Would that be 'a half legible sentence?' Mr. Rat.

Good Lord, Ratty, I really had no idea you worked as a metropolitan borough liaison officer for East European gypsies.

I currently work with a croatian refugee who's never spoken a word of English in his damn life, even he can string a half ledgable sentance together.
I strongly believe in proper spelling and legible sentences

(I had to look 'legible' up in the dictionary, to be certain I spelt (oops!) it correctly )

BTW, is a 'woos' similar to a 'wuss'?

Ok Rat.
Sorry for swearing at you.
And my apologies for not using a more intelligable style in my post.
My only defense is that I had just come off a 12 hour nightshift and was a little fried round the edges.
However any comments on my post, as opposed to my grammer would be appreciated.
Oh and anyone have any knowledge of a twist grip rather than lever throttle?
Much better control I would have thought.
Might have a go at making my own.

I'd definitely agree with that. I'm more used to using an outboard tiller rather than wheel and lever throttle. Throttle response (and obviously steering) is much more quick and precise with the tiller. This is very handy for navigating the shoal strewn lakes and rivers in the Canadian Shield. This set up is fine with a very small SIB like mine where a rear vantage point isn't as much of a concern as it would be with a larger boat.

When I get a longer SIB (or RIB still undecided) I plan to fit it with a centered jockey console with a handlebar steerer and a twist grip throttle.

Hum!!!

A very low geared hydraulic setup and motorcycle bars and twist grip.

Bugger no, you get hydraulic creep with a fluid setup and you would end up with the bars upside down in the end.

I'd want to keep it as simple and field repairable as possible.
