Re: Two Men in a Boat "Bass Straight Crossing"

Re: Two Men in a Boat "Bass Straight Crossing"

I think its a great idea, I have found a mirror 16 makes a good seaworthy boat for a seagull and you can carry a lot of gear on one. I have preferred to use a boat where the steerage is by a tiller and rudder and not the seagull, it makes it more comfortable as you can get away from the noise

Re: Crank appears to be seized on a forty plus model??

I don't think the bing carb is standard for that model, they were used for a short time in th 70's model,
does the gearbox turn at all as it could be siezed and that could be the problem
