Certainly was! Never let a little bit of Solent chop disturb a days ribbing

We did Poole, Yarmouth, Cowes & then back to Poole in the little Avon. I'm just waiting to hear when we get our medal for the sub 6m class...

The Cougar looks great BTW.



This rib looked dangerous as she came through the start. They really should have fitted a glass panel in the hull so they could see where they were going!

Good effort!!!

i may have some pics of you somewhere or maybe a shot on the video but need to sort through them. will post them if i do!

As for that rib.... gave us a little fright as it came through like this. not sure what or who it was but sure didnt look happy! i think it retired and went back up to cowes as we saw it hooning around the finish area as well.

As for the cougar, it was the first time we had it in any kind of sea and i was very pleased with it! plenty of low down grunt from the engine and grip from the prop to keep us comfortable. bit flighty into the head sea but think most things were yesterday! did you see that sunseeker (tomahawk or something, 45 odd feet) we saw clean air right under it on several occasions!!!

Well if it was an XS200, I have never seen a picture of one riding level. They must be a real handful. I know Bob Turnbull in the white & blue one but I don't think he made the start as his seats worked loose during the muster to Hurst.

Have a look at photo 2 in post #8 here (I don't want to lift his photographs without permission) http://boatmad.com/forum/showthread.php?t=16816

Perhaps Mr Fuller will acknowledge the benefits of tubes now, if only to keep the sandwiches dry...
