New Dinghy Outboard

This morning we left the Marina at Emerald Bay and motor-sailed down to George Town. Since the winds were calm we were able to anchor about 1/2 mile from town. We didn't want to anchor there before because it is exposed to east winds. George reinflated the dinghy and we drove it under the small bridge and into Lake Victoria for the first time. We tied it up at Minn's Water Sports and left it there for the installation of our new motor. We ran some errands and stopped for a drink while we waited. It was all done when we returned. We loaded up our provisions and the old motor and started up the new motor. The instructions say to run it at 1/2 speed for the first hour so it will be a while before we can really appreciate how much faster it will be. It is certainly more powerful and even quieter and we do like that.
