AquaVITE 74

Really pleased to get my new RIB on the water this weekend for the first time with correct seats / interior.

Very good day Sunday - helping with safety cover at the Cowes-Torquay-Cowes powerboat race and also getting down to Bournemouth for the air show.

Thanks Ben -shame you didn't get out. Race was ok and although a shadow of years gone by there was still some decent kit and a general feeling that entries will improve in the future.

Then trip over to Bournemouth was good. We were going along well in quite bumpy seas - cruising around 45 mph, with odd bursts nearer 60. Felt quick until Phil would go by at around 70 in the PPG RIB!

Short clip[ of film taken across Christchurch BAY - many thanks to Petter.

Very pleased how she is riding and performing. Probably best aspect of all is the cruising speed and economy.

Next boat in build is a diesel version. Then other possibles based with outboards, including a 4 x Ullman jockey seat version are being looked at for clients.
