Far Fetched - Maiden Trips

Joshua (15) and I took her out for three trips on three days last week out of Lymington.

First pics are en route from Fareham. Later ones in Lymington.

Nice looking boat Bruce. Have fun.

Hope to see you around some time.

Brian



p.s. Have you got Farfetched on steroids. It's a mighty lot of boat for 3.2m or are you just being modest...

Looking good Bruce, a bit different from the old boat would you not agree?

took her out a week ago in force 5/6/7 just around the mouth of the Lymington river so we could run to safety if we got scared. Had a lot of fun, but returned to base when our courage - not the boat - failed! Could never have done that in a 3.2M SIB - unless we were experts like Keith in Scotland!

Looks sweet Bruce!! Hows the Opti goin?? Have you got her run in yet? What have you taken her up to so far? I love leaving her rip and that sound just above 3000rpm all the way to WOT

Quick tip, just to be on the safe side I wouldn't show your cars reg in any pictures you post online. After all RIBnet is the top search result for "Rib" on Google so this is where any RIB thieving scum will come to do their research and find out what address your car is registered to.

We don't want them finding out where that sweet machine is kept now do we!!
