RB4 - Gemini

finally restored to something of its former glory
out today with it at South Shields.
Thanks to the Predator dive rib that arrived at the slip just after me,
would have taken forever to recover with my p.o.s trailer and dodgy winch,
if they hadnt stepped in

I remember this little boat well, it would give of a huge amount of spray and when were filming during the event and all the boats needed to line up, no one wanted to be next to it as you would get drenched . However onboard it was a lovely little boat. Looks great now!

its still quite a wet boat ... in a bit of a sea it does chuck up a lot spray still.
Ed (nugent) just sorted me with the screen on the console and although its not tall, it does catch a bit of it.
It feels very solidly put together, I was told it was a one off build by Gemini just for the event.
