Preparations for River Sailing

So for something different I am planning on taking Quest onto the R.Nene this year. The Environment Agency is responsible for these waters and there were a number of hoops that I had to jump through before I could go.

Testing Outboard on Voyager 14

Testing my Honda 2hp outboard on a Voyager 14. GPS speed is in mph. The engine performs best at half revs with a full tank (1 liter) i managed 7 miles at half revs and an avg. 3.5mph in calm waters.

Fitting an outboard bracket

My DIY skills are poor at best, however I really needed an outboard bracket on Quest before I took her onto the river nene.
