PPG Gulwing.

Went along for a bit of testing in the solent today. Two knackered props, too many crew members and still managed 64 knots. Weather cracking aswell.

You gotta win best wake shot with that one, makes me fink how much more you'd get with two good prop's, and just 1 crew.
Be great to see vid footage, apparently we've got some more good weather tomorrow .

A really good test and all very positive.

Speed was very good all considered - but also the overall ride and stability was excellent.

Don't think there can be many RIBs offering that much space and practicality - with perfromance as well.
