Nice RIB! Do you have issues with the lack of leg room when seated at the Helm?

I guess you mean the Shearwater & to be fair I'm 6 1 and I find it pretty good when sitting or standing. The avon I got BHG to set up to suit . I have taken the toilet out as it was pretty daft in the solent - I'm never more than 10 mins form somwhere with a real bog.

You can get 4 in the cabin seated if needed & me & the Mrs have slept in it at YArmouth & at anchor in the harbour down here so wokrs well for us & the kids get minimal bouncing inthe rear seat in most seas .

Its such a differant boat to the avon , but I want to keep both to use them for differant things !

The pic was all arranged before handand taken with me on a slight turn away just incase ! Did the same with the jetski !

I guess it has been christened - does that mean I cn sell it instad of giving it away ? but not by me - the boats 3 years old so guess it was used at some point. It looks odd as it sat in the bow of the avon for a while ( also in the garage) and seriously odd looks from the neighbours when I rolled it out !

Jim at Bembridge Outboards has always thought it was OTT to have a plumbed sea bog - and now I have 2 holes/ valves just waiting to fill the boat with water - though they are well sealed off I still worry !

This was the closest one - you can see her shadow on the tube - a second later she was hit by a wall of water ! No more after that !!!!. I hate that its hard to get photo of yourself in your own boat doing anything exciting !
