Launching the boat

The only outdoor activity has been putting the Dinghy and the outboard on the water.

We are using Poca dinghys  – one with a Yamaha 4 stroke 80 hp carb engine and one with a 60 hp Mariner EFI model. In order not to disturb the animals, a 4 stroke engine is much to prefer due to its more cultivated running and thereby cultivated noise profile.  Still low speed is essential  if you want to ensure normal behaviour.
