Great video Mr Willk have you been looking at mine and getting a few tips

The Beast looks fantastic i want one, looks like you had a great time, we are looking forward to a week there in August thats if i can sneak in over the Border past Jambo's hit squad
The scenery looks fantastic, looks like the weather played its part pity the Cardinal cant pick a weekend like that lets hope its as nice in July

WoW!! That video really shows the power of The Beast, As for dinosaur cost, It's a bargain! You could'nt have that much fun on a similar priced average holiday, Money well spent me thinks, With spectacular Scenery included, Looks like a good weekend had by all.

Great video,pictures and commentary willk. You've got some talent kid! Just as well Danny didn't take that header of the boat in Loch Sunart. I can see another career there if he want's to give up the all-you-can-eat-and chips-buffet circuit.

Glad you guys have enjoyed hearing about our stroke of good luck

I was trying to resist enthusing overmuch about the 1050 - it's not possible to do the Beast justice, you really have to sit on the thing and press the throttles hard forward to get the full picture.

Speaking of pictures, the facial expressions of Team Jambo holding on during the Hunting of the BruceB say it all - the full spectrum from Elation to Highly Concerned, and they were just clearing 40kts at that point - the real fun started round the corner - but no camera work at that stage!

Did I mention that she's for sale? Low engine hours, max spec. and not too badly abused by Test Monkeys!

I can get you a RIBnet discount too...

If you want to sell the boat possibly some bikini-clad buxom blonde babes draped over the aft tube in a warmer climate would be a better way to go. Each to their own I suppose!

My kingdom for a grab handle.
