High speed towing test

I was northbound on the M5 yesterday afternoon near Worcester and spotted DM towing Ian's New Prosport. I'm not sure if he had left the MASSIVE Suzuki engine switched on because I had trouble keeping up !!!

It looks good Ian .

Either change of plan, or Ian won't be very happy when he arrives in Southampton to collect Black Jack tomorrow!

I hope it was Jono's 6m you saw on the M5. If not will DM let me know where he's put my boat!

He'll be happy. Black Jack is sitting on a pontoon in Saxon Wharf having come over from Guernsey, via Weymouth, yesterday. Hopefully, it'll be moving to Pwllheli on Monday. The boat I was towing was Jonnos 6metre which also came over yesterday. It's working in North Wales today.

I did see a flash git in a Lexus waving at me but I thought he was objecting to the speed so I'm sorry about the two fingers, John.

WOW!!!!! what a RIB!!! Both me and my dad are well jealous!!!

Alright, I'm Chris Broom, I did the Level 2 course with PPT on the 6 & 7 march with the MVS. I had a great time, just wanna say thanks to jono dave + ian for a great weekend!!
Everyone is still talking about it!!! Some wont shut up about the Prosport RIB. Really annoying as I didnt get a go in it!!!
Tried to persuade my dad to buy Tru' Blu', but it wont fit up the path !!!

Will be over at Pwllheli later in the year with our RIB. Hope to see you (and the new boats) then!!
