What a day... 30ºC, light wind and a fast boat - what more can one ask?

Tried starting the motor at home, but the battery wasn't having it - one hour charge and maybe four turns of the crank and she's burbling. Maybe six or seven starts on the river this afternoon, all instant. Happy.

Nearly two years since I last used this boat and wow, I missed it!!!

Still more to do, but minor, like nav lights, cushions, interior lights etc, but now it's time to start building some canoes... ;-)

Later,

Tim.

Okay:

First pic was taken last weekend, playing with trim to see what I could get out of her (58.7 km/h = 36.5 mph or 31.7 knots). I just can't quite get her to do 60 km/h, but hey, I'm happy with what I have.

The other 3 pics are from messing about on the water this morning,
