Hello

I owned one for two years engined with 115 johnson - very nice boat reliable, not of an offshore nature though, but very easy to
manouver n fm wt I see u'v got it with the right engine.

There is a great deal of difference between the clubman n coaster - clubman is much better n able handle bigger waves.

I sold it to buy a larger boat for which I am currently on the look
in the secondhand market in Greece.

I will try to post some photos but def it will look much different than yours due the medstyle deck of mine.

enjoy - it's a good boat

Hi Enalios,

Tnx for the reply, what kind did you own ?
Did not try the boat yet in rougher seas,
but can imagine it likes a really smooth ride
as the 'aft' does not have a very deep V

Curious what your's look like !

Did not know that there was such a big difference between the coaster and the clubman..

grtz. mervyn

The 'coaster' has a very shallow 'v' almost flat thus the 'clubman' considered much better
Fm experience when u hv to handle heavy seas some caution n good seamanship is needed.
For high swelly waves (ocean like) even with crest its better sail through the length of the waves i.e. waves port or starboard n do some 's' to reach destination, for choppy waves its good enough bcs the bow is high enough to go over the waves n with some good use of the throttle u can make it look easier than wt it really is.

That's my experience fm this boat which is giving exactly wt is designed to n not less. great fun when is light (yrs looks much lighter than mine anyway) with waves not over 0.50 m where u can play a lot.

Will try to post some picts tomm (I am at work now) if I can scan n post properly

Your trailer could go back into the water another meter. It will make life a lot easier.

tnx

for the tip...

in this case could go any deeper, due to a
'stop' at the end of the ramp..

Manos,

What on earth can happen to a rib with REASONABLE USE and take it apart ? In my opinion, whoever is the owner, if he doesn't hit a rock and rinses the tubes with fresh water once in a while, then the boat must last much much longer than 15 years. Consider mine. She's 5 already. No need to mention x-Achileas Joker.
