Launching a BIG rib

This weekend is a traditional midsummer party and festival weekend in Finland. One mobile phone operator arranged rib ride for their customers in the local music festival. There is a small lake in the festival area and I went to see how they are going to launch the boat that size. Well, it wasn't easy but they managed to do it!
I met the crew and had a change to go for the first ride. The boat was impressive even the lake was much too small for the boat that size.

The boat is Boomeranger C-3500. Lenght 10,5 m, 2x Yam 300hp HPDI outboards.

I have one C-3500 Open available for immediate sale if you'r interested. A friend of mine is buying a cabin version and wants to sell his nearly new C-3500 Open with 2x225 hp Yamahas...

This boat Jari posted pictures is nice. I have driven it and goes very well. Last year it had 2x225 4-strokes, now 300 HPDIs :-)
