OK, so the piccies didn't appear in the order I expected. Pretty easy to work out which is which though.

and my current boat, a 585 Ribtec with a 135 Optimax again.

It is happy at 43kts in most weather and nowhere near as uncomfortable as the humber was.

And finally my first one! ADelta 6.75 which was a bit of a dog but totaly at home in any sea. I've yet to go on a boat which felt as safe or rode as nice in waves.

mine are a bit tame!!

but they're all I've got so far. I've been too busy getting to know the boat!
One was taken when I went to see the boat, and the other when we picked it
up (pictures considerably doctored to fit)

Sounds great. Richard and I are really looking forward to it! See you then!

ADS - are you still up for this? If you can get yourself to Reading we could take you over to Levington (or wherever Wayne wants to launch from...).

Nice looking RIB Nick and bet it flys with that 200 on the back! Tell me.......Are those sculpted seats as uncomfortable as everyone says they are?

Thanks Hightower.
Re. the seat, I find it OK - you can wedge yourself in quite nicely but it could always do with a bit more padding in the bigger stuff.
