University of Portsmouth Sailing Club Ribcraft 4.8

Well, it's here! The brand shiny new ribcraft 4.8 was picked up by myself on Monday, and the tide being reasonable was promptly taken out to start the run in. We've put 4 1/2 hours on her since then, and these are some of the pics from her maiden voyage Monday night.

It's a mariner 60hp 4-stroke BigFoot.

I keep getting moaned at for getting a 4-Stroke rather than a speedy 2, but it will pay dividends in fuel economy and towing!
