This is the INFANTA F3 RIB.
The compnay is also located in Swellendam just across from FALCON.
INFANTA is also the name of a small fishing village just 100kms West of Swellendam.
Photos on tomorrows thread of all that and the wild life that we found driving through rough roads in the South African countryside

Manos,

As I can see on the picure before last they MUST be using surf props. I can't find any other reason of making such a large spray curtain with a prop like yours. By the way what was tha max speed at the time?

Nope Bat they use proper props (the F3 on 90bhp uses SS Yamaha - don't rememeber pitch and the F2 on 150 VMAX uses SS Yamaha Pro 23" and 21" depending on the weather) is the set up of the engine. When I get to Greece (in 10 days times or so) will set the engine up the same way and will get a few more knots as well as huge spray at the back

On the F3 95-98kms/hr (I think) and on the F2 with the heavy surf about 110kms/hr
