    Actually, I was thinking that you would be towing a couple of your boats. Reminds me of something I saw at a Waterways show some years ago. An outboard dinghy towing a string of toy dinghies and each one had a teddy bear seated in it. It was the annual outing of the Boating Bears Club!

    Cheers, Nerys

    Great location Nerys - but there is a small current in the river - trip is 1.5+ hour each way - none of my boats have the speed/endurance and there are some very bad snags/ weeding along the way . An I.C powered boat would probably be better as a lead boat - sadly no longer have any engines............ only a water cooled head for an old version OS10/20...........

    The pontoon boat we were on is powered by a 40hp 4 stroke Outboard - that has to work hard at times.

    Hoping one of my friends & I will be sharing a full size boat sometime soon - then it would be easy to run my models while he fishes..........

    That looks like the ideal location for a good old banyan party. So pleased you all enjoyed it. Pity you didn't take a couple of your boats along though.

    Cheers, Nerys

    Hi Red,
    It looks like you have a lovely time.
    I am surprised you did not have one of your model boats following you on your trip LOL!!

    Putting the Sea Commander in the dam at Centurion next Sunday now that the council have allowed us to meet with Covid19.
    Just want to see how she performs before I repaint and Refurb.
