A few years ago I was keen to do the same trip in a Parker 630 diesel rib. Having now done it in a 9 mtr I am pleased I towed the 630 (Seahawk III) to the UK
Well done !
Are the rear wheels of that Fork Lift Truck off the ground

My first post here. She's a beauty - saw your new RIB in pride of place at the dockside at SDS at the weekend when I dropped off my new boat (a little more modest 5.8m Avon). That looks to have been a challenging trip from Poland given how cold it was - shame you didnt get this weeks weather.

By the way - very impressed with Southampton Dry Stack so far - its great to see so much enthusiasm and passion from the guys who run the yard.

It was very challenging but not cold like winter frost ect . We were lucky however to have had good weather at sea , specially when crossing the North Sea, no rain or storms , no big waves .

the worst was Selsy Bill and the Solent last Thursday

as for SDS then I could not agree more with you. I had shopped around and I am very pleased of my choice
