Well what a fantastic evening had by all and a big thank you to Cookee and Kitten for introducing me to their new pet the Bananashark 770 today, and by god she’s got some bite..

I couldn’t believe how quickly and smoothly I was planning at 58Mph given the conditions, I can remember seeing Roy in Voyager taking off on the same waves to our starboard and we were cutting through em like a hot knife through butter.

The boats fantastic with the sci-fi hull, teak look decking, Neon lighting , remote control spot light, switchable seating arrangement and top stereo, although we could have done with some “rock n roll”

I have never been so fast and felt so safe although the racing accelerator took some getting use too.

A totally awesome ride, experience and boat…. Thank you for letting me have a go and I want one!!!

It was great to meet everyone (even Mollers!), and it was our pleasure to bring the boat down and we're flattered that everyone liked it so much.

It's amusing that Luke and Amy winge when thier dad goes fast on his boat, but can't wait to get in the Shark and go faster! Roy - I think Luke and amy are going to give you a hard time untill you change your boat!

Shaggy - All the best with your impending new arrival!

Great photos and I love the movie!

It is only Amy that moans when we are flat out - i think its a bumpy ride in the chop - my boat doesn't get up on top of the chop like the bananashark.

And she probably liked having a proper seat for a change - her legs are a tiny bit too short for the jockey seats in my boat.

But your right - the big grin on her face at the end of shaggy's video says it all.

I must get a hat for her next time - it took an hour to brush the tangles out of her hair... Long hair and 50+ knots are not a good combination
