yeah no problem, as long as you understand the rules;
You bend it, you mend it. You brake it you buy it.......

I live over on the Waterside area, so hythe slipway would be good for me, plus it will give you a chance to stretch it's legs. :D

18 kts - very impressive! We didn't quite make that progress on the lumpy passage to Oban - think we made the decision to slow at about the same point! :drive

Chris
Looks like Andy B has you covered for a trial :drive so you can make your own mind up 8-)
I did have a search and came up with this but it's Blootac with his old 2 smoker 9.8hp which he replaced with a 4 stroke Mariner ..... there's a video of it in action but I'm dammed if I can find it :-x
Anyhow you'll get the gist and he's two up with gear ...... watch from 1.22sec onwards ;-)
