yeah had about 3 1/2 hrs out today, went to yarmouth, cowes etc, tried a couple of props , tempest 23 = 68.3mph , and a rapture 23 which gave a great ride in the chop but topped out at 68.1.

did a lot of turning to get used to how she handles in the corners! wicked!

LOBBERS managed to stuff it !

Beautifull weather! sun shined all day for us!

20 minutes prior to this I'd phoned and asked Burty him if he wanted to go out in my P20, to which I was met with the following response: "Nuh I really don't wanna go boating" "unless you let me drive"
