I am VERY, VERY envious of your boat, and the beautiful cruising area.

I don't think you're the only one!

What's good to see is an expensive rib like that actually being used, not just pottering in flash places or near flash yachts.

Awesome boat/scenery/trip, would be such a beautiful holiday instead of the carribean/med/Maldives dros that is peddled by tour operators.

Indeed .. and the sailors will tell you that apart from the Fjords, only NW Scotland ( & Ireland ) and New Zealand have such stunning Scenery for cruising.

Looks like a nice craft quaoar with respectable performance That shot of you maxed out on the calm water looks good for a wake shot

Dunno about that. Norway looks a bit light on bikini clad lovelies when compared with the above.

Your Goldfish looks great, I love the pipe extending from the engine bay, is that the exhaust, must sound bad. Fjords cruising, I did that on a ship I worked on years ago The Royal Princess 45K GRT, great scenery must try it on a rib sometime.
