new demo PARKER 750RS

new demo PARKER 750RS

Well the rib is here. Over the weekend I jumped into my disco and headed for the city of Szczecin on the Polish German where I collected the rib and towed it all the way back to the UK. One hell of a trip of 800 miles at a speed of 50 miles/hour max

I launched the rib for the first time this afternoom and enjoyed a couple of hours off Littlehampton. I am taking it very easy cos need to run the engine in as per the manual. As for the engine well it is the Mercury Verado 225 and what a beauty. I will continue tomorrow afternoon and on thursday head for Cowes so for RIBEX the engine will be nicely run in

here are a few shots taken today

Well took the Dover-Calais crossing and the day before checked the price on the internet for just a return ticket for the vehicle. Mind you a night crossing and a fixed ticket. The price quoted was pounds 150.00 . The internet does not allow for the purchase for trailer one way so decided to purchase on arrival at Dover. I turned up for a 6AM crossing and you are not going to believe this. For the vehicle Dover - Calais 70.00. For the vehicle and 8 mtr trailer 80.00

Hi Paul
yes she is and you may regret you hadn't waited

the seating is two double pods and a bench seat so you can comfortably sit 6 persons and ample space between console and anchor locker
