Yes it is.

Not sure how far we are going yet. We are booked into The Muskham Ferry tomorrow evening for some food.

Not sure where we are headed on Sunday but we think we want to be back at Dunham on Monday evening. So wo t be venturing too far. Perhaps Hazelford.

We have friends with a big Sea Ray that has twin twin lever controls.

He assured us it is easy to use; but there are too many levers for my liking!

Up date on peppermint pig,  exhaust in the water is no problem,and the 13x8 prop I was worried about is ok now I've got my engine speed down,and it's more controllable with a single lever controll ,I've managed to fit a lawnmower throttle and cable to the stop controll arm and position it in a place just before the engine stops,this takes all the free play out the pump rack and stops the 

Engine hunting , and reduces tickover speed as well,I've still got electric stop seloniod wired to key
