Manos they look fantastic!!


I wish you all the best in your venture of hiring them out.
And sure the advertising on ribnet will get you plenty of bookings.
And with the big discounts you give to the first say 50 they will all be talking about you will have to order more.

Any way they do look very nice well done

Manos are those photos taken in SA ? the colour of that water looks like Scotland!

Still see they have decided to change from the hardnose to tubes at the bow.

Looks good, wish you all the best. Oh and you will be sending a cheque to JK at this very moment for the advertising, yes ?

Pete

Thanks for your comments Steve.

We have now allocated a budget for advertising in magazines, TV and internet and will see what happens

By the way the discount is even higher say 100% for the for the first 5 but unfortunately places have already been booked

Pete these photos were taken in SA in a dam is called Swellendam (same as the village). Have been there and the water looks brown!!

Manos they look awesome - can't wait for my Rib-X 640 to arrive just 2 weeks left, From the pictures the tubes seem to ride a nice distance from the water - I presume this attributes to the high speed they are capable of?!

Congratulations

Thanks RLS
Possibly your boat was in the factory when I was there. Has it got a blue or grey colour tubes with the blue (AVON like) paches on it ? I have some posted some photos from there and if you look in the galery you most probably see it.
When the boat stands both tubes touch the wather, when is on the plain they don't (very much). The speed of the boat is due to the shallow V (only 15 deg). (The deeper the V the slower the boat).
This boat (650SR) has been designed to ride comfortably on waves, and get on to the plain quickly too. Hence you can use a relatively small engine (I used 115bhp) and get high performance.
I'm sure you will enjoy it.
They are very nice boats indeed.

Manos,
Mine has got grey tubes with blue patches - it left South Africa about 10 days ago so I presume it was being built when you were at the factory. - Can't wait!!!

Good luck with the venture!!!
