Hi oldbow... welcome to the forum.
Good sturdy SIBs those alloy floor Honwaves and it must punch along well with a 25hp. We've owned the 3.5m version and I always felt that needed more than the 15hp we had at the time.
Over at Corby you are not too far from us... as the crow flies we are the other side of Oundle from you.
Have you been sibbing for long? Like us you are well inland... where is your chosen boating area?
