Wheelyboat Engine is on!!
The new and upgraded Wheelyboat Engine is now ready and waiting! ‘Odyssey’ now has a 90hp on her and this means some fast exhillerating speed!
Thanks to everyone who donated through Crowdfunder, generally emptied their piggy banks, held events, ran miles, auctioned their personal possessions. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! You have made this possible.
