Brrrm brrrrm

We are having the boat engine serviced and Mark came to give us a quote, when I phoned him to make the appointment he was surprised when I told him what make of engine.
It seems the engine was designed for sea going vessels and can even cope with strong tidal waters. Even with the size and weight of our boat he said we could easily get up enough speed to tow a water skier!
I don't think we will be testing his theory out!

You'll certainly cause a stir as you turbo-charge through the sedate canals!!! Especially with a water-skier in tow. Lol, lol.

That engine will be really useful if you decide to do the tidal Thames, Sue. It's a great circuit. Coming out of Limehouse on to the Thames, in a boat with the steering capability of a bathtub, is quite an experience. It's very easy to do from where you'll be mooring, I'd definitely recommend it!

It's a trip that we have planned Witch Hazel, but we aren't sure when.
