I bought a Honda boat!

Made a rather wise ebay purchase a few days ago, in the form of a Honda/Extreme.

Odd thing is, in addition to the Honda OB, it appears to have a pair of surface drives fitted!!

Also note: they're 'Turning in'!

The thing I find the funniest is that they've used my boats rather than the cougar splash!

Hard to say really, although there's a cougar built 21 at drivers (according to the hin no) that needs a gallon of petrol and a match, it is possibly the worst built, (as in laminating) boat i have ever seen.... Glad it's nothing to do with me!

I spoke to one of the drivers of a 225 boat recently, and he said the "roll over problem" was all down to driver error, he reckons the "error" that he made was buying the boat in the first place!!!!!
