Had a trip out to Lake Windermere to try out an old wooden Motorboat. The day could not have been any better, sunny not much wind. Just the weather for boating. We put the boat in near at Windermere near the Ferry across the lake. The boat started after a bit of tugging on the rope, no electric starter with this one, just a bit of elbow grease.
Had a great ride up and down three quarters of the Lake, as we were unsure of our fuel levels. Even managed a bit of speed when the lake was empty, (using Endomondo on my phone to measure speed and distance) could definately water ski if you wanted!
