    Outboard ( around 80 to 120) long shaft

    Yep , it's going to be a etec , only when the monies in the bank . Its got to be fitted and commissioned , no more messing about ! I will ( next year ) have the time to go fishing , possibly Doombar will be moving down to Cobbs ? Dreaming the impossible ? A decent Spring and Summer , a new life and only myself to answer too , living the dream ? Very possible .

    Utterly perfect , I'm going to send him a message and IF it's available in a couple of months I'm going to stretch the budget . That etec though !!!!!!!! Who is a decent Evinrude mechanic ( @Gazza)

    That at one is superb but !!! This going to drink a fair old bit Thanks for the link Rob , they also have a 135 Honda , that again perfect ( Ā£4.500 šŸ˜“) I can't seem to get this Etec thing out of my head , it really seems to ticked all the correct boxes , The 115 is the perfect power, very low weight , economy as good ( if not slightly better ) than a 4 stroke, yes I've read about a few issues ( mainly from the yanks and crappy ethanol fuel) I've read a lot about the e tecs , I'm not setting my heart on one as I have a concern about getting it serviced ? Is is there any real concerns about a etec ???

    Yes, saw that one, looks just the job ( I'm not positive but does this seem about Ā£5/600 more than its real value ??)
  7. A big decision , it won't happen until Febuary so just putting out the feelers . Its a hell of a lot of cash (for me) so Doombar will be sat ready for a few upgrades ! Ā£3000 to absolute tops Ā£4000 must have all dials and cables etc , I really fancy a etec . Im not too fussed about the make as they all seem pretty good . Im going to put the word around ( dealers ) as this seems to be the time a lot of owners look to upgrade etc but as usual with over 120 boats and ?????? Members I'm sure I can get a decent deal from a club member ( I hope !)

    Christchurch Entrance

    Thats because the channel will always keep changing and moving , dredge it one weekend , it could change overnight with a storm .

    Christchurch Entrance

    I have found the best way, it took me three props to realise I have a perfect running auxiliary engine on a sprung bracket , It's only a 4hp , it does the job , ( just !) only need 3ft of water and make sure to stick to that plotter , I must admit I love having a nice mooring at Christchurch , the very slow carefull plod to sea and back is not a issue as such , (for me ) Stick to 1 hour either side of HW or pay the price .
