the launch of baltic quest in ice ;-)

Most boats are out of the water this time of year ... we had to break the ice using the crane to launch.

Nice video thanks for posting. What kind of performance do you expect from the boat?

hi we got a top speed of 41 knots with 4 people and 540 litres of fuel.
however the load on the engines was only 90% so even if we add more weight ( ie people) we will not loose speed. we have spare revs and power.
the boat is rigged for general perfomance not top speed.

When you told me last year you were doing this I was impressed.
Now I'm just jealous of your adventure.

Seriously, I think congratulations are in order, and I can't believe you dragged, literally, the Rib.net burgee all the way there.
