Newest 4x4 PWC

Just got preliminary information on these cats which are soon to be introduced in Europe.

They are made in Durban, South Africa

they look like great fun and are a step forward from the rhino rib the only problem is the out board engine which is a standard one. all jet ski are jet drive
and are now toping 215 bhp which is very fast the last one i had was 145 bhp
and my face use to splat bugs like a number plate at top speed. when
playing with a jet ski you can roll them over if you did that to the above i don,t thing the engine would be to happy if any one wants one i think its still for sale in the ribs for sale section at 3500 thats a cheap fun toy over a jet ski price its got my appoval

ps - The picture of TomKat at speed was taken on the River Thames at the very first RibNet Thames cruise.

OK, so it was a but wet, and cold - but it was a great day out.

(and I had plenty of fuel!)

Pics of that trip are here

Thames Cruz

Here I am going under Tower Bridge.......

So at 3m am I the smallest RIB to take on the Thames?..... I must be mad!
