Welcome aboard, matey!

Sounds like a good combo you've got there. Good idea to get used to it on the river but no doubt you'll be keen to open her up off the coast once you feel comfortable, should go well.
Feel free to ask away if you have any questions, also remember we love to see piccies on here so don't forget to take a few when you're out on the watter!

:cheers

Welcome to the forum Chris. Honwaves are great sibs, you are going to have loads of fun in that. Good engine choice as well, a 15hp should push that along nicely even when fully loaded with people.
