Had a run out last night with Gary and James in the Cozzy Nutter. What a boat! Complete with glassed over bullet holes where it had been once raked with machine gun fire off of the coast of Morocco.
Gary has spent loads of time and a fair bit of dosh building the beast.
I had a drive in her which took me back a few years, foot throttles and cavitating cleavers.
When she clears her throat and the turbo boosts up, everything goes mad! The noise is incredible, the exhaust manifold was getting near to white hot at 925 degrees C
The best we saw was 47knts in a flatish sea, Gary reckons there's another 1000rpm to be had and the prop could use another inch or maybe 2 of pitch, he's aiming for 60knts. Very impressed with the hull, stable and well planted. But then, it's an Osprey cousin.
