Tight fit

My demo rib is now on route to the UK having had a major service done on the engine. She arrives Monday. The guys did a good job with the loading as at first they thought it would be impossible. Our own truck ready for boat transport was not available and I did not want to wait any longer.

Nice bit of ingenuity used there. I've seen roof panels and sheet steel transported like that. The most impressive was an F1 type Catamaran that was at about 45 degrees.

Glad to see you won't be boat less for long Andre bet you can't wait!

Are you sure this wasn't when you were going too fast back to Southampton dry stack and couldn't stop? It's amazing how far a boat will jump!
