Actually I also typed some nice things in about it but me system crashed and I couldn't summon up the energy at the time to redo it!
Anyway, now I have finished mowing the lawn.........I can return to the thread.
Loved the engine. V. quiet, smooth economical etc. Just now I realise I could/should have done better. It was the wrong power/weight for that particular boat and it was a bit stern heavy.
The build was of high quality. No doubt about it. In retrospec I cant think of anything that broke on it.
I would buy the same boat again but............
select a diferent engine
have jockey seats only
move things forward a bit, or at least until the boat was balanced better
There now, do you feel better?
