'We have done this before'
I watched with some trepidation as five blokes lowered Le Heap off the side of the quay into the boat.
The water was deep.
‘You are not the first moto’ I was assured.
‘What? Drop one into the harbour?’
Five minutes later we were surfing the seas at 45 km/h with Le Heap roped down in the middle of the boat. We pissed past another speedboat full of passengers.
Unfortunately, every time we came down hard my nuts got mashed into the deck. I didn’t fancy forty-five minutes of this and started to move back. I was told to return to my post, as ballast, so I moved my equipment to a safer location by bracing my legs inside the forward locker.
‘We have 115 horsepower. Very fast, very fun’.
He was right.
