WAVE JUMPINIIIIIIIIIING YESSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!

Depends on the weather John
But when you do over 70 knots this is what you get. These guys runing the boat on a Yam 90 bhp and get something like 55 knots.
I will have a Yam VMax 150bhp modified for Formula 2 and will get 20 knots more (I hope!!) HEHEHE (sneaaaky smile)

Gavin

I have a FALCON 700 RSR my slef and have ordered a racing version too for 2003 to have it in the UK (the other boat is for the family and is in Greece).
I bought the boat last year and done about 60 hours on it during the summer holidays (one month) hoping from island to island in Greece.
We encountered varied weather from sea as flat as a mirror to forse 7.
You are right the seats are a bit back but the boat is built and is ballanced in such a way that whet ever happens it will rearely flip over.
Certaily in this race both of the Falcons never turned over.
I had a few SIBs and RIBs in my life time including Zodiac 3.3, Silinger 3.8, Bombard 3.5, Maestral 5.5, Joker Boat 6, Gemini 5 etc and finally the Falcon.
I believe that out of all this is the best boat I had.
Falcon's build good fast, safe, seaworthy boats
