No, I went out with Laurence last February. Unfortunately it was flat calm, but we played around in the Red Funnel wakes. I was very impressed with the boats turning ability, no tendency to jump out no matter what speed of entry and power setting and no tendency to bow steer. The quality was every bit as good, if not better than both my Tornados.
I take delivery of Spitfire next week, and funnily enough Martha's photo is the first time I've seen the RIB! The new 4 cylinder 200 Verados should hopefully give better consumption than the 6 cylinder ones, which will be much appreciated, given the boat has a 600 litre tank!
It will be hard paying for my own fuel again, but the RIB will just be for occasional use because my commercial work is still going to keep me busy.
