First boat

Just came across this - my first boat.

Pearly Miss with 40 Evinrude - what a piece of kit. Actually hads loads of fun in it! Think I was about 14 at the time.

Think it did around 32 mph - and was pretty good - handled well.

Rememeber getting caught out one day when the weather changed and had to get back from Studland in choppy weather! Hard ride but the boat was safe.

Still - I was pretty cool at school to have a 'speedboat'

A pearly miss is not a 'gizmo' by any stretch of the imagination
