Introducing "Seahawk 4"

Hi everybody and greetings from my ribbing holiday in Dziwnow Poland

We are now just into our second week of our ribbing holiday and during our first week we were joined by Mike & Sheila C who enjoyed with us the best of the weather. After Mike & Sheila left the weather changed and it started blowing F6 to F8. Hopefully from Monday this will improve

We had planned a trip to the Isle of Bornholm on Saturday 5th August with 2 Parker 900 Baltic ribs heading from Leba but this change in the weather conditions put our plans on hold. We may try this coming Saturday.

Dziwnow has great facilities for ribbing cos you can either go offshore or enjoy the vast areas of inland waterways. I am sure Mike will like to add his comments specially since it was his very first trip to Poland.

We had available for our holiday my next demo rib the Parker 750RS with CMD 320HO inboard diesel engine linked to the Bravo 1 drive. A very much capable rib which on the inland waters reached speeds of 45 knots.

Our accomodation is in the marina and on one of the shots you can just see the rib leaving the marina heading for the sea. On the other side of the river you can just see the Harbour Master's office and without his permission no playing offshore

sorry no action shots cos no second rib to take them from

This is a shot of our Parker 900 Baltic with twin Verado 250 taken off Leba. On that particular day we had planned a cruise to the Danish island of Bornholm. The two Parker 900's were going to cruise from the east and we meet with us just 50Nm north of Kolobrzeg. Unfortunately due to the change of weather we had to abandon our plans.
As you can see the conditions were not for such a cruise. Perhaps we will manage to do this on Saturday

Andre,

Did you test you fuel burn rate on the 750 diesel? Curios to know what your fuel consumption is at cruise.
