^^^the boat does get up a decent speed in your video, despite only a 2.5 hp engine. I guess the boat is quite light.

She is quite light, 100kg. I am usually driving at 1/3 throttle like in the video. With my electric Torqeedo outboard I am using ~180w out of 1100W. Not tested her on my 4 hp, 7.5 hp and 9.9 hp outboards yet :?

The snow is from yesterday.
It was a crisp clear sky -2°C day when I went out for boating but then the clouds rolled in. Currently it's snowing again.

Outboard motor looks fairly beefy. Petrol or electric?

It's good ol' petrol, 40hp, not huge but plenty enough for her hull.

Equivalent electric outboard would cost ~£20.000 + batteries ~£2.500 each + rigging parts :shock:
I am not that eco-friendly.... :silent:

Facing north from near the summit of Mont Ventoux looking towards the alps during Les Cinglés - a fantastic experience but one I'd be glad to never have to do again...the toughest emotional and physical day I have ever spent on two wheels.
