Round Britain Entrant

I met up with Richard yesterday who is entering rather an interesting RIB. It was designed and fabricated in Australia and then shipped to the UK for building.

Have a look here ==> http://www.roundbritainrace.co.uk/20...hardgilpin.htm

At 13m with 4 * 300hp o/b's it will be an imposing site.

Not sure whether he hangs out on this site, but if he does "good luck mate". Unfortunately I left before I managed to get his Email address so if anyone knows him I'd sure appreciate it.

Cheers

Mark

I don't think he'll be stuffing it in a hurry!

I've just pulled out in my boat but may have a ride in something very exciting if all goes to plan.

They had an article on this boat in Rib International earlier this year. Apparently the OBs will be Suzukis

I remember the bloke posting on Ribnet - I think he's from the Channel Islands.

Looks like he's dropped out.

I know he had some deal with Suzuki on engines, maybe that's fallen through.

The boat looked like it would take most seas and I would have liked to see his fuel bill!

Cheers
