Reykjavik cruise 18.10.08

I and Gunni (workmate) we met at work this morning to pick up Valiant PT650 ISN, already I had picked Cheesee up at our toy storage, went to Snarfari our marina to launch the boats, weather was a bit chilly 0 degrees and little wind and bit of waves, we went out on two boats for short spin and as we got back to the marina Sveinki (on here) was ready to launch his RIB together we went to Reykjavik harbour and went to "Hamborgarabúllan" (Hamburger joint) for hamburger and as we got back to the boats we saw Stefnir (SAR boat from HSSK, Parker 900 Baltic ICE-SAR) as they where to be backup boat for Arun and helicopter exercise, which we watched and was very informative. Then we went to burn fuel extensively especially on Cheesee and prior to launching we change prop and speed reached 78 miles and now is to try one prop up as she had no problem adding 4 miles.

Unfortunately I only managed to take few pictures as my camera run out of battery

What is Cheesee rated for in (HP)? That Verado lump sure looks heavy on the stern!
