bow and stern lines to the bumber or underneath would have prevented that from happening. Sometimes - me included- us boaters can be a bit lazy tying boats on.... I have lost a couple of boats over the past 20 years and the consequences make me sick thinking of them.

Just like throw ropes, are for the others that are near you! Not a rant it just worries me that so many don't use them.

Absolutely correct. I'd gotten lazy about not using bow and stern lines. Never again.

Being the driver of the truck following said vehicle, I can tell you the pucker factor was WAY up there when I saw the three boats take flight. I'm still pulling seat fabric out of my rear-end.

Ha, ha,

And just think, all I was asking was is the L'Edge based purely on performance of is it designed for large Americans!

I'll have to get over there for a paddle, I think I may have a similar sense of humour to some of you!

Take it easy folks,

Kelvin.

Oh, I'm going to give the L'Edge a go!
