V. nice rig. Congrats on your purchase.
I would be very interested in any performance figures you get out of her Dylan.
Any particular reason for the Bravo 2 over the 1 or the 3?

Thanks for all the comments!!

The plan was to do something commercial with her - hence the size/spec etc etc, but then that plan went awry a couple of months ago - and she was on order by then (oh dear!!). It was quite amusing to see Nicky's face (my wife) when she saw it in the car park!! Ah well, I'll just have to play out instead.........

Brian, after reading up on some of the comments about Bravo 3 legs, and a bit of research, it all led to the impression that the B3 was not really able to cope with a 300BHP Yanmar. I spoke to Ribcraft about it, and they agreed that the B2 was the way to go - although for the life of me I can't remember why we dismissed the B1.

Having said that though, looking through the manual, at least I don't have to take the prop off to change the oil on the B2!!

We are launching her tomorrow morning, and once I've got her passed the initial 10-20 hours, I'll let you know how she does!!

Dylan... (still grinning like an idiot...)

I know that feeling very well, don't I Alan?

Sure you'll have lots of great adventures in her - hopefully some of them will be in the Solent!
