ah!  Thats sooo good!  The casually doing 75 to 80mph in a mahogany canoe with a diesel outboard strapped to it !

I travelled in Thailand in 1989 coming back from the UK. In those days Ko Samui was a sleepy little island very few people went to.  We caught a longtail out across the bay from the mainland to the island.  Great fun.  In those days they were powered by Nissan 4 or 6 cylinder SD diesels.  I don't think we had any safety gear apart from jandals...

We were in Koh Samui in September 89.  Asked my lady to marry me there.

What could possibly go wrong! 

Probably get a few more k's with cleaner fuel/injectors.

And - I hope he wasn't constantly checking behind him for people overtaking....

Running over-fuelled ,  I’m guessing he’s monitoring the colour of the smoke for early warning signs of impending turbo or piston meltdown .
