OK Andre, for light load 2x250 hp may be a bit high, but of course a good driver can handle the boat safely and use the extra power when really needed, max. load onboard.

I saw the C-RIB in boat show, I'd remember seeing it also before, I am not fully sure. Unfortunately I had only little time to inspect the boat, nothing to complain at this phase.

I just yesterday heard that I will get a chance to test drive Verado 250 and 200 for couple of days on early June in nice fast daycruisers (not RIBs....). Obviously there comes only few Verados to Scandinavia for this season, so it will be very interesting to see how these new engines work at sea. And report will follow here if earlier hands-on experiences won't appear before my tests...:-)

Not sure what happening this weekend yet but even if we are not going out I will be down to say hello anyway.
Weather dependent I might put Galaxsea in the water.

Was going to today but it really wasn't worth struggling to get out in all that white stuff. ( I know NW ribsters, SOUTHERN WUSSIE !!)

I will let you know via a PM later in the week.

Phil

OK then I will try again.

Either the Mole at Sopot or the lighthouse at Port Polnocny?

OK Andre I give up.

Originally you said “The Hell lighthouse is much further out on the opposite side of the Bay We were just along the coast east from the Port of Gdynia”

Well east of Gdynia is Sopot, Port Polnocny and Gdansk.
You then say “Sorry Brian the rib and the place in question are west of Gdynia the two places you have mentioned are to the East of Gdynia”.

I was already Confused-of-Paignton, I guess I am just no good at these quizzes!
