Fast Boating. Where?

Due to them Bringing Speed Limit in on windermere and causing arguments


Where else is the best place to open up your boat and give it the run an outboard needs to enjoy it self

The sea is the best place as you have more room to play at being daft without altering someone elses plans.

well the closest lake for me is windermere and it's about an hour away but at the moment it's worth travelling the distance,but after march they are whacking a speed limit of 10mph on it so i might have to take the boat out to sea.

In Malta, we only have the sea.

No lake luxury here - There is only the sea and only when it is in a good mood on your day off (very rare) you can open up!!
