Just gave it a quick run. It's only about 5 minutes from the marina to our 'dock' but saw 53 at 5000 revs. Should do near 60 when I find the other 500 revs.

Very soft riding and the strangest thing of all is that the yotties waved (in a friendly way) at us!

Drugs, nah but I understand that it's part of Virginia state law that all boating must be done whilst very very drunk.

You look like you've caught the sun whilst you've been out there!

And you look like your carrying a few holiday pounds.
