    Mudderfrugger! What a detailed list of specs.

    That F300 should be a thing of beauty to hear and feel when it's pumping ...

    OTT : What are the Auz regs ito distances allowed offshore on a single outboard setup?

    Not as much of an issue here as in SA. I think SA is tough as guys launch off the beach up and down the coast and marine rescue / coast guard coverage not as good as here.

    Basically here there are no limits, we launch out of ports, there are well monitored VHF stations with repeaters etc. up and down the coast and we log on / off - if you like they will call you every 2 or 3 or 4 hours to check status too and we have a good number of other boats out at any one time that can relay should you be out say +50nm and cant reach base.

    What about Sodwana? Haven't been there for a while but it was always a beach launch.

    Not sure about Sodwana either, never been there, but if its a recognise and regulated beach launch site, then it would be allowed. I was more reffering to the statement that guys launch off the beach up and down the coast. That isn't allowed.

    I was thinking that would be the situation, makes a world of difference when you're living in a first world country as opposed to here ... well two worlds, technically.

    Oh well I left there in '93 so I guess things have changed. I will edit my response then - no there are no limits on single outboards offshore in Aussie

    Happy ?

    There are a couple of spots that do beach launches in SA, Sodwana being one. Mabibi is another.
    Ramsgate on the South Coast is another, I remember from my Natal days.
    If I remember correct, Umglangha has a special ramp for beach launches.
    Umkomaas is another spot.
    So, there are a couple of spots that you can launch from the beach in SA.
