Is this an Oirish only thread or can the Brits join in
Hi Wannabe That Pulsar looks like it's got a good hull - just needs a snazzier logo - the block capitals PULSAR just look a bit naff. IMHO.

(Paul did you notice the Gemini parked behind? )

Hi again

Great pictures gavin.. mine are more or less the same even got 1 of the pipe bands!!!..Was a great day and will be there next year..Richard your more than welcome to thread with us...as im a brit too.. all the way from cumbria...ive seen pulsars being built and there second to none my uncle always has saftey in mind and works on each hull personally...the hulls are (from what i know) very good..but i would say that!!! He spent most his life collecting information on hulls and put all that in to two years development before the first hull was popped from the mould..he even does his own consoles and jockey seats..but on about hulls the one in this picture is a 6.1m with 150hp and the owner has had 61mph out of her!!!..and the handling well alan piddy got to grips with the 7.4m (first picture) and was very pleased with her..not bad at the first attempt do ya think..(well i was impressed) anyway if anyone is looking for a new rib give pulsar a ring and see what they can do..me im just gonna keep saving till i can think about giving them a ring

This rib raid sounds a blast. Myself and two rib owners always holiday around the Portpatrick area around lifeboat week in the summer. I run in the fun run as do many of our friends...insurance you know..and did the raft race this year...worrying though...we came second last...the lifeboat crew were last! How easy is the crossing cos it was just a thought that we might do the opposite rib raid and invade Ireland! Any advice would be welcome. Also when do you intend to come over next year...if our dates were the same, we could act as a welcoming party.

Crossing

You would do the crossing in your sleep its no problem, two Zapcats and a 4m Searider done it, I think that it will happen Aug B/H Irish one we will get this info as the time approaches, its a good spin you should do the whole event jump on the ferry Larne Stranrear and spend the weekend in Bangor its a great weekend.
