It was on the boat and I agree exactly with JRD's last comment.

Oh I do like it when I find someone who is seemingly as mechanically inept as moi !!

2700rpm ? Holy crap....our red noisy smelly thing would have conniptions if we even approached 2700rpm.

Then again slow measured progress is our way, the only way to get plastered on the Womboat is with me and the Wombet over dinner and a bottle or so of vino.
