  6. Having never read one perhaps I should try a new reading experience
  7. October? Leaves on the prop without a doubt Quick burst of revs in reverse would have cleared it. In narrow, shallow, places dropping the revs is always good because high revs will drag the bottom down etc reducing hydrodynamic efficiency so yes you are right about that.

  14. I have had a Bosch router (green one) for twenty five years or so. Used it for occasional DIY stuff as you intend. And have been very happy with it. It came with some bracketry and guides that I have actually never used. I am unsure what you mean by 1/4 and 1/2 inch tools. Do you mean the diameter of the tool shank? My router takes 1/4 inch shanked tools of which there are loads available from various sources. I tend to buy single tools as I need them rather than sets. Individually more expensive but cheaper than buying a boxfull some of which you may never use. For your intended use, and if you were to go with Bosch, I would go with green given the cost of the blue range. I find a useful guide when deciding what to buy is to have a look on Amazon and read the reviews Edited to add - Just been to check and mine is actually from the blue range (POF50) so all I said above about the difference between the two Bosch ranges might be waffle I may not have helped
