You could try carrying some lengths of guttering down pipe in the boat - you may have to wedge them just sticking out over the bow for full effect. Give it full beans & see how much face is saved ................

Daniel, reading your exploits in Grayswish was what prompted me to purchase Kohaku. Many fond memories, thanks! And didn't you buy a Viper after? Guess what I have now......See the pattern

so strictly speaking andy you now need to buy yourself a RibTec... but i *beleive* the newer boats are not all they were when they were UK built (as mine was)

Now what shall we have next... really i'm waiting for Richard B to sell me his 7.5 Scorpion.

Incidently, i would have a viper again any day.

I have spoken to a number of people that regretted selling their Vipers, I'll be keeping mine long term but might contemplait putting a bigger outboard on the back in the future.
