Another day in the office - sea trials in the Bay of Gdansk

It was - 4 degrees C today in Gdynia Poland but clear blue sky and the wind dropped in the afternoon
It is hard to select the best days for sea trials so one has to make the best of it. A number of layers does keep you warm. We left Gdynia marine about 9:30 and headed for Gdansk with a stop over in Sopot marina to take some good shots. It was rough and i did not manage to take any photos. Unfortunately the ice on the river did not allow us to get to the old town of Gdansk . It was a super day and the client was fully satisfied . This rib a Parker 900 Baltic is heading for warm waters so these cold conditions will not be experienced again.

photo 2 shows the entrance to Gdynia marina

photos 3,4 & 5 just off the Sopot marina

this is a leisure / family rib and there will be cushions on those hatches for sub bathing. the storage lockers will provide space for diving / snorkeling equipment. Picnic baskets and whatever the family will need during their outings.
Because of the weather we did not want to put the cushions and seats on as these would have only got dirty.

Guys just got back from Poland and to be honest I find post 6 & 7 pathetic . You guys should grow up and take threads seriously and not make stupid jokes out of them in public. What really surprises me that admin participates in this as well. A bad example

If you do not like my threads then just ignore them and do not to put such stupid comments as this is not only offending me but also my client

Andre, your sense of humour bypass never ceases to amaze me . You've been on this forum for 15 years and still don't understand how it (and the rest of the internet) works do you?. I'm not sure why you think we don't like your posts - every reply we make helps its google ranking and helps you promote the brand - if we disliked your posts we'd tell you directly. Probably worth bearing in mind that everyone here (including the people who's posts you'd like to have editorial control of) is a potential future Parker buyer.

I'm sure the vast majority of people here were aware that JW and I were making comments in jest and not seriously suggesting your buyer was aiming to smuggle with it. You might want to work on the "Brand Personality".

Poly, I am sorry but you are wrong especially since we have never met and yes I have been here for a long time and I think I do have a great sense of humour . Those who have met me may agree but I never make jokes like that especially with such references which not only point to me. I do know how the forum works but not always agree with it but posts like these I find totally unacceptable. I know that people will just think you are having a go at me OK but please not like that. Have a go at the rib as that is what I am presenting. Tell me I am an idiot for going out is such cold weather . This I can accept
anyway I have said all I want to say on this subject.
Bearing in mind my very long Trade Membership why not delete at that so we can forget about it stay friends and move on. What do you say?

OK Steve will do. A lot has already been done cos the deck is on and the fuel tanks are in . The engines are due next week. I have photos from day one so a nice story can be created.

I will start a new thread later in the week

by the way the colour is all Military Grey - Parker's favourite colour as some might say

This is the same rib but has had a lot of LTC at the factory prior to shrink wrapping. We are only waiting for the trailer and then off she goes to Sardinia to enjoy a much better weather climate. Yes a very much leisure layout.

Looks much better with the cushion on.
