Message to all club members from our Bosun

Dear member,
You will be aware that HSC has recently purchased a Rigiflex boat with a 9.9 hp Mercury engine as its new Harbour safety boat. There are some significant changes in using the engine compared to the existing larger HSC outboards and therefore I have provided a User Guide, see below, which I hope you will find useful when using this boat.
A copy of the guide will also be posted in the RIB shed. If you have any comments I would be grateful if you would send them to bosun@highcliffesailing
