I just drive them until they break and then turn it back in to the boat locker. I leave the fixing and disposal to the boat mechanics who work there.

My understanding is that isn't required because the thrust isn't in a corkscrew pattern.

I'm leaning more towards a newer 4-stroke. Less noise, better fuel consumption.

Are you speaking from personal experience? I have heard a lot of people say that but none that actually had ridden in one. It's true that the black Hypalon get hot to the touch in the sun but unless you're riding nude it shouldn't pose to much of an issue. I can only speak from experience in the NW climate. I can imagine it's a different story near the equator.

Bill, let me know if you come across a small dingy to take the dogs to shore for a leak. No davits, just something for the foredeck.

After some delays I have finally taken the maiden voyage today in Black Bean. A real fun boat on the water.
