Just a bit of a ribbing

I went out today on Magnum Force and played with a Solent rib in the Solent - it was after all my day off!

Cougar 8 metre with 275 Verdao - top wack today was 54 knots

The Solent - XLR8

The Cougar was just a dream to handle, took tight turns with no breakaway and when flung at the wash of Redjet 3, she just glided over it - oh I want one!!

The Solent put on a fair turn of speed but a lot of chine walk when trimmed up, but no comparison. Bu then there is rather a difference in price!
