Valiant Vanguard VG 400

Hello,
This is my new toy. Valiant Vanguard VG 400 with Mariner 30 EFI.

First day out managed 20 kn with 5 people (340Kg) on board up the river Tejo.

Next Sunday will go for another trip with only 2 people to see how fast it can go.

Fuel consumption - have no ideia, maybe 3 liters/hour. Next Sunday will refill it to check!

Cheers,

Hugo
(Lisbon, Portugal)

Not my boat, but the pics were so nice thought I would share them.

Boat is a 5.5m Delta.
Credits go to Rory at Highspy.

Swifty, great photos!!

If this one was in sharp focus I'd say it would be the best RIB photo I have ever seen!

Wish it was! If you look further up the thread you'll see it's one of Swifty's photos'. Cracking shot!

I was motoring at the time...
The compression from 5.5Mb to 48Kb has not done it any favours but I think the smeared spray actually adds to it. I really like it and will go about getting it printed poster size. Anyone interested?

The picture was taken by Rory at highspy during a brochure session.

Dame hard to photograph in that environment even with remote control. Hadn't realised you had it professionally done, shocked in fact but I'm saying no more.
