Great vid.

This is one of the many reason why I love ribbing on the Solent.!!!

I haven't got the boat to do what you did, but one day........if I keep dreaming...just maybe.

The Red Jets have max service speeds of between 35-38 knots depending on which craft, with theoretical maximum speeds a few knots higher. Red Jet 4 being the fastest.

I can just about catch her in the fletcher, but not nearly as well as you do Jizm! Excellent closing pace there.

What camera were you using? I'm looking at getting an action camera at the moment, I'm not sure whether to go for the SJ1000 and save some cash

Or if just to go all out with a go pro.
