My maiden voyage certainly did not go to plan. Car broke down, transporting and assembling, launching and landing the boat where not as simple as I expected. I even bent the metal pole that one of the transom wheels was mounted on.
Despite all this I had a great time on the water. I'm very excited to take it out again. Though I certainly have a lot to learn. I am looking forward to when lockdown is eased and I can take power boating level 2.
I have just been furloughed, so I am considering going on a multi-day boating trip and staying in hostels or camping over night, when lockdown is eased.
I have to thank Pikey Dave for recommending Excel. I visited their site before his recommendation. It looked so old and was not easy to navigate which put me off. Though I'm glad he made me reconsider as despite this the boat is really sturdy and well built.
Here is a link to some videos from the day:
I will look into your suggestions for the license plates. I might call to ask if it is necessary for a SIB.
