There was a small window yesterday for trying out my new toy so packed the car the night before and headed down to Portland harbour sat morning. Was a little bit apprehensive as this is my first SIB and outboard and haven't got any experience other than kayaking. But I did my homework reading as much as I could and watching plenty of vids on youtube. The launch and retrieval went well other than some wet feet of the kids they jumped in a little too soon
We were on the water for a few hours before the wind got up and kids were getting a bit cold so we headed back in. The 15hp was plenty of power to get the sib planning with gear and 4 of us on board. My fish finder wouldn't power on so not sure what speeds we got up to. Did get up to full throttle at points which was great fun although the mrs didnt approve :rofl
We all had a great time and cant wait to get out again. Really happy with the setup cannot fault it.
