Boat trial and inspection in Poland

Just got back from Poland yesterday after spending three days at Parker factory in Ostroda inspecting the two boats under construction and doing boat trial on the one which will be towed to Rotterdam today to head for vessel leaving for Iceland on Wednesday so hopefully the following week some more piccies in Icelandic environment will be posted here.

We had 36 degrees temperature during our stay and what a different to cruise on lake doing over 50 knoths to cool yourself down...... but instead I and Ingolfur (the owner of the two Seasafari ribs) we got (sunburned) instantly.

Our sincere thanks to all staff of Parker Poland and to Chris for the extreme hospitality during our stay.

Some few more pictures.

We did prop testing...... first with Laser II 21 in pitch then Venture 19 in Pitch as could be seen in one of the photo taking half way prop changing.

Cool, Bogib. You certainly get about.

What's happening with your UK/Iceland crossing?

Great photos Bogib.

Having spent a day on the 9m Parker that came to the UK for Ribex I know you've got a couple of fantastic and very capable RIBs.
