First trip out

Today was the first day I had the opportunity to take out my new demo rib the Parker 800 Baltic. It was a superb day with lots of sun and friendly seas. Nice to have lunch at the Folly again.



Saturday 8th July lunch in Yarmouth

you are quite right and that was only one blast as I needed to confirm the max speed. Short blasts do no harm. 25 knots is the normal max speed for break in and that is what I was doing
