Parker RIB 630 D

Parker 630 Images Picture of My new Parker 630 D taken at the factory in Poland

Final preparation and installation of various items and pre delivery inspection in progress.Trials in Poland indicated a Speed of approx 35 Knots fitted with the Mercruiser Deisel with an Alpha 1 stern drive driving a 23 inch prop.Handling has proved to be superb and exceeded all my expectations. The electronic installation includes icom 601 DSC and Raymarine Colour GPS / Plotter . Extra D fendering has been placed on the bow sections and side and a New full width consul has been moulded and fitted to both craft. Seats have been modified along with new backrests etc.All maintainace points in engine bay are easy to get to with a new engine box having been designed and fitted.Full details of these craft will be in major Uk Boating Publications next month.The Orange Craft "Platypus" will be put to use Mid may 2004 and simply put we cannot wait to get her on the water in the UK to get down to some serious ribbing.

More to follow today including "Seahawk 11 " ( Andre Scotts Rib ) Note the New colour scheme on Andres craft ,the picture simply does not do it justice in the flesh this colour scheme really works well. The Craft is the same identical rugged spec as my own orange hull craft but has the image of a true lesiure craft giving Andre the best of both worlds. Out on the water it looked superb. we hope to post more images in the very near future having had proffessional photograhers present during Trials in Poland.

Hi

Nice looking boat's.

I really like the grab rail above the windshield, and the back of the seats.

Looking forward to seeing some more pictures of the boat in the water.

Rene

Seahawk 2

over 100 photos were taken from my camera (not by me ) and not a single good action one so hopefully the guys from the technical press will allow me to post some of theirs

this one shows Seahawk 2 at rest and preparing for the first demo run are representatives from the Polish yachting magazine ZAGLE (this means sails) This monthly magazine has a powerboat section. Interesting was the fact that they were also measuring the noise lever
at idle with engine compartment cover closed - 68 dBa
at idle with engine compartment open - 86 dBA
the noise level was also measured at different speeds and will post exact readings once I get the full information (these are the guys in the light jackets)

the other guys were from the Polish Powerboat magazine Przeglad Motorowodny and two guys from the local TV station who just happened to be there.


Andre

the next photos to follow will be some action ones (when I get my hands on them). These however will give an idea of the set up and hull
The tube grab handles will be fitted in the UK due to some some mix up on the colours. The tube bum patches are the same colour as the tube , not quite visible on the photo but are there for sure

Great boats lads!! Won't miss Andre anyway, crazy colour scheme!! I like!!

Seats look very comfy. I like the grab rails at the front of the jockey seats too. Might get a set for my rib when I get it.

Lovely Boats

Looks like a VERY nice and visible boat (the orange one).
For those who are unfamiliar with the term. "Platypus" is a Greek word meaning "Wide foot". The one who has VERY LARGE (thus wide) feet.

Wishes for safe & pleasant sails.

p.s. And the power of the engine ...??

That was the idea to be recognised anyway the RED
the stripe can be exchanged for a different colour . I am going to leave the final decision to my better half

Andre

PS. Perhaps one month White the other ocean blue and then back to red again , who knows . Just a thought
