Hi Andre
Great be good to see you again, campsite is not too far, Martin may even take pity on you and drop you off for a class or two of falling down juice.

Not to give away too many details the rib will be all black with 4 x Scot seats, powered by Cummins QSD 2.0 170HP and Bravo 1 drive but also a good chance this could be the now Cummins VW TDI 165HP and Bravo 1 drive

this rib will be at Seawork in June

You can always take her for a spin round the Island
