Goldfish RIB

Everyone who looked at this boat was astounded by quality of the finish. The Goldfish guys seemed passionate about the boat and how they could improve the performance and reliability.

Even more annoying was the boat went like the clappers and we had a good race with it off Dover. Luckily for us our boat is much faster in the rough and pulled out a decent lead that they couldn't catch before getting back to Portsmouth.

Great guys and a great boat.

Agree with you on your comments Mark, well built, very fast and a nice bunch of chaps, i am sure within the year when they carry out the mods based on lessons learnt, the mk 2 will be a cracking bit of kit, just a shame about the price tag.

They pull amazing speed with 780HP. We had some great racing with them as well. We were quicker in the rough i guess they didn't want to break the boa, they were much faster in the flat. Raced with them on the Milford, Oban and Edinburgh legs. Cheers guys was fun

That is an amazing level of finish to that console! The amount of machining that must of gone into it must have cost a princely fortune! Very well done.
