Nah.. Left her to go and tend her allotment while we went out and had some fun on the water

Came home to some lovely home grown vegetables for tea.. A win-win situation

Hi All,
New to the forum, Just bought half a SR4 (well at least I think its an SR4) with my mate.

Took it out in Oxwich bay the other week, first day calm second a bit chopy. Hit the point between Oxwich and Port Inon on the choppy day, WOW it handles nicely in 4-5m waves

Thought I'd load up a few pictures of it in the state we got it from ebay and then put a few more up once weve given it a bit of TLC. Already spent a weekend tydying up the electrics and wiring up kill cord. Need to re do a repair on the hull where it's comming away.

Tony

I moved the fuel tank into the seat but I guess that had nothing to do with it. Porpoising was a bit less tough.

Seems about right to me - 40kmh is about 25 mph which is about 22knts ?

I have a 4m Avon with a 50 on the back that 'only' manages 32knts/35mph/55Kmh ....

Still a great looking boat - something about smaller RIBs that just makes me smile

Yes I have a similar sized boat (slightly smaller and probably lighter) with a 20HP 2/str on it and I can just about do that speed (22 kts) on a flat calm day with a light load. Adjusting engine height, trim, prop etc. for optimum I might get it to 25 kts if I am really lucky. I keep meaning to do it but not sure its worth the effort!

I am afraid you have one thing in that pic that always really annoys me.........not sure why it does so much as I am more scottish nationalist than UK nationalist in outlook.

You are flying the Union flag upside down.........

On another tack I now have my boat on Humbers website http://www.humberboats.co.uk/destroyer.html in the Destroyer range which is a bit of a nice thought.......

Here’s mine with the new Suzuki DF90. Already put another speedometer in, the first one went up to 80 km/h but wasn’t enough .
Instead of a radio I had to make something to hold my beer can in, also important!
