New member intro

Hi folks,

I have been a long time lurker ,but have now took the plunge.
I have a Honwave T38 and Suzuki 20HP and enjoy diving and exploring primarily the west coast Scotland.Usually operating by myself means my back gets a wake up call and can surrender when combined with running in heavy chop,such is life! anyhow great website and informative forums glad to be accepted.

Back problem

Hi Jeff
Manhandling the gear i have sussed out various technigues which help,but the real problem is bouncing through heavy chop, after a couple of hours the thought of donning your dive gear starts to wane.However as you say it wont stop us! cheers.

Welcome to the forum recurve. That's a popular outfit combo you have.

I'm lucky for whatever reason my 63yr old back is fine sitting on the tube in heavy weather... it's trundling to the slipway and sometimes lifting the outboard I have to watch. For that reason I had to give up my Suzuki 20hp.

back pain

Hi Fenlander

Lifting the engine perversely feels like a good workout at the time i am 57, but the posture when piloting using the seat is a killer over time for me at this point
so i am going to do exercises to strengthen my lower back and improve posture
as you say it is a good combo albeit heavy cheers.

You could try an inflateable thwart seat pumped up to allow some bounce, worth a try, I'm 65 now so you've a few years yet, but I differ in that I trail my set up no more lifting for me.
