I think you should fasten the buckles on your life jackets incase you fall overboard.

Yeah, I thought that too. Not muvh point in wearing them otherwise!

Is the RIB 9m? Top speed is not that much for a lot of hp. I also think that the seat moulded into the front of the console will be fine until it gets a bit rough. After that I think it would get a tad uncomfortable!

We are very happy with a top speed of only 55 knots. The baltic Hull was not designed for top end speed. It is a very wide hull offering a very comfortable, safe and dry ride.
The R.S. WICH HAS A VERY DEEP "v" and has a narrow hull would definetaly achieve a higher max. speed.

Lovely boat.
I don't know why more ribs don't come with sunloungers at the front. Total waste of space otherwise..

In no way did I mean to cause offense when I questioned the speed, after all 55 knots is more than enough for anyone, just a little suprised by the figures. Wonder what 1 engine with less drag and half the fuel consumption produce on the speed front. Just often wonder about the pro's and cons of the twin setup.

I'll have a 750 baltic on the water in a fortnight with a single 250 verado so we'll see how she performs only 1,5 metres shorter. Will post some pics aswell.
