It will be on time!!

Today I went down to Yeovil to take kit in preparation for coding and delivery of the new school boat. She's due up on the Solent next week and I took a few pix.

Looked big! Best of luck with it, lots of good seating too, should make a good safe boat. 7m is big for training though, on my PB2 I had a spot of difficulty parking an SR4! Got the hang of it by the end of the course though!

It is looking good. Anyone would of thought John has copied mine, but different colours !!

When you get it give us a bell and we shall go and get some piccies done of the two boats.

What!! Nothing like your's - it's got the new hull which of course is white. But then a Ribcraft is a ribcraft. They had a very nice tender for a super yacht nearing completion when I was down yesterday - bright yellow, 2 seats and twin 100 Yammies. But still a Ribcraft.

Yes, but I hoping to get some pix of the launch on Thursday using mine as the camera boat.
