I am going to take my Bombard Aerotec 3.8 up there this summer.
All the best.
We have a cottage in staithes and have kayaked there for years the location you mention is the one we use already for the kayaks and will be using this for the boat (the small green and white ferry boats behind the seat are my wife’s).
We have just got the zodiac as we have wanted something with an engine for years but storage is an issue so we have gone for this option.
Before we take to the North Sea I was wanting to get the boat out into a lake to familiarise ourselves with it before hand.
Is there any where you would recommend to do this.
