real mph as reported to me!

The rough water testing they have done has gone very well - and all seem happy - actually happier with testing than I've known. But I need to go and test myself, although I will probably wait until the first leisure version is completed.

A couple more photos, one rough water and one more recent at speed.

All going well for the 888 in the Greek championships - now 4 wins out of 5 races.

Also plans going ahead for the leisure version and another race boat.

The 888 went on to win the 300hp class National Championships.

I'm going out to test the boat early next month and discuss other boats with Technohull, as I'm designing a new 12m RIB for them as well as a modifed 999 model.

A year after appearing as a bare boat and then being used as a raceboat the first leisure version is being shown at the Athens show

One more shot from the initial testing and all going well - but still much more set-up / propeller work to go yet.
