Your Valiant looked to be doing really well through the lumpy stuff on the way back

Yes the crew do shout a bit at times when its lumpy . makes it a bit hard to get the right speed for the waves at times cos you know a heavy landing won't go down too well .
I really dunno if the Valiant is good or bad , unless i could just jump on another rib in the same sea , not really tried much else tbo. I don't think its too bad for a small boat but I wouldn't like to cruise into a sea like that for too long with it , it gets pretty uncomfortable .

That osprey certainly does go well , and sounded nice as it disappeared into the distance at roughly twice the speed I was cruising at .
Yep, but the fuel goes at 4 times the speed of yours
