PBS Destroyer 5.5 with 115 optimax

Just a few pics after her first trip out today, only stationary ones though.

The boat handled very well, nice soft, dry ride. Got 41.5 kts for a brief spell at full chat and a short stay on a sandbank

Thanks to ian and jono for answering all my questions over the last few months

Bring on summer

looks like waverunner and myself had intersting weekends

that is the visitor pontoon at brixham, we left the river dart and called into brixham, then carried on up to exmouth, then back to the river. great day out. i've always had a chuckle at the people parked on the sandbanks before, but it was my turn yesterday.

plenty of room around here for visiting boats

Glad you enjoyed it

A couple of questions:
1. Is that a Shakespeare console?
2. What's going on with the cushions on the front pods?
