Can I ask - was there a reason you went for the Protector over the similar Aquapro?

Both kiwi boats, not much between them spec wise it would seem...?

I look fwd to hearing how she rides...

I think the Protector had the edge on looks, plus I was able to visit the factory to see how they were made and also speak to the coastguard in Auckland to get their opinion.


By the way she rides wonderfully. She is a heavy boat, hence the 500 horses, but that means she flattens out most waves.

Did 4 hours two weeks ago in a rough sea state coming back from the Scillies and the only problem was getting the drink out of the cupholder without letting go of the throttle..
