There Will Be Blood

Off I go again and this time I turn on the fuel. Sure enough after some coaxing the Black Knight starts.

Can you see the smoke and cooling water?

However it is no good, there is no real power and he suddenly stops just as before. Mene mene Black Knight  teckel upharsin.  Black Knight you have been weighed in the balance and found wanting. You are not the solution to my engine dilemma.

However a solution has, I hope, been found. I go to eBay and find a delightful little 2hp Chinese motor. After a few emails it appears to be on its way to Okinawa.

Check out the very convincing video.

I somehow feel the Japanese customs might mess this up but no harm in trying.

Blood.  I watch the Lions beat Australia. Very lucky as the Australians would have won convincingly had they had a kicker.

At half time I slice the top off another finger with my deadly Japanese vegetable slicer.

These things are absolutely deadly

    They should have a warning – do not use after drink has been taken.

    But, and I acknowledge the smug bastard “I have not done it” here, don’t you always use the gripper thingy; mad to use it unprotected. Missed the Lions, travelling on TGV from wet windy rainy Brittany to wet windy rainy London. The outboard looks unbeatable at that price – must be a catch surely. Two strokes banned in UK now, maybe that is the catch. Still, since it seems that Europe will not be having summers anymore, it does not matter v much.

    Maybe that was it.
