I is sssooooo good it has to be experanced to be belived... I only had a quick spin off of cowes , and not in race......its good, infact its really good,
I was always slightly puzzeled why cookee was into racing ribs, as it seem a little bit of a waste of a rib 'just' to race it.
but getting the helmet on , sitting down low into the cockpit , and wedging yourself in , with the GPS and some engine guages and controles in front of you is cool, I would guess like a small race car......
And then the engine is rumbling right behind you.... I must say the pick up is V slow , but its all about top speed
after about 28 knots the prop starts griping properly and you know you are in for it then
you can feel cookee controling the foot throttle , as you race towards 65+ mph and when you hit a wave ...... you just fly forever, before crashing into the next big one, and getting launched again...... I think the prop is in most of the time because the speed never drops .... ITS GREAT ... the other big thrill is other RIBS along side......... I would love to do A race
I saw 68mph on the GPS and I think we were against the tide too
I now know why cookee races ....
Thanks again Cookee
