I remember that RIB. Nice one. Are you out this weekend for the Around the island race?

Bajan, when you next down the Solent? We should start up a BWM owners club or something.

Great shots of your RIB, what do you think of the handling of you 6.5m?

I'm down every weekend and occasionally during the week. I didn't think there were that many BWMs + owners around, are there?

Thanks for the comments on the pics.

I like the handling of the BWM. I don't have much to compare it to as I only drove 2 other RIBs apart from this one. One was a Tohatsu 6M which should have been an airplane as we were constantly bouncing out of the water. Not ideal for our purposes. Comparing it to the Tohatsu, it wins hands down just for stability. I'm sure the extra .5M helps as well.

I'm also quite happy with 34.5 KTS(GPS) with such a small engine for the size.

What about you? What do you think about the handling?
