Great to meet you lot, thanks for the mob practice got my glove wet though but glad we saved your cover
Sorry you got wet - and like I say, we'll try to be a bit more sociable on subsequent trips. It was only our third time out on the water so I didn't want to push my luck too far with the crew. I think we made the right call 'cos we all enjoyed the day and it hasn't put anyone off.

Nice rib by the way, heard lots of good things from Trevor G about the ballistic 6.5
Cool, though it's not mine, it belongs to a boating scheme company and I get to use it now and again. If the novelty doesn't wear off after a year or so, and we get an idea of what to look for in a rib, then we may get into the market for our own.

We'll be keeping a look out for more trips to join in; as displaced northerners we are not afraid of a bit of cold weather, though more cold weather kit is definitely on the list!

Yep, we were doing 44 knots from Portsmouth to Cowes with the tide and around 40 - 42 knots against it. This has sparked a whole new conversation about prop sizes and if stainless is a good idea as mine is slipping in the water a bit (to fast acceleration so the prop can slip in the water rather than push the boat along) I think I need to go up in size and may be change to stainless....

I'm using a suzuki 3 x 14 x 21 Alli normally revs to 6k but tried trimming out at wot a bit more than usual as it was flat calm, went up to 44 knots and 6.4k

Thinking about a 3 x 14 x 22 Stainless Steel.

AJ's running a 4 blade SS....
