The only boat to suffer real structoral failure was the Ribeye from Belgium, most of which could not be seen, but the boat was "very wobbly" after the first leg. Some other boats had some maintenance (Pascoe to its transom etc) but continued. The SR7 had a fuel tank failure, The Bladerunner had the console come loose, where was the Scorpion?

As far as I know Paul Lemmer hasn't raced anything for several years - in fact it was probably a BananaShark in 2001 or 2002 and he didn't win anything! Also he was navigating not driving - Sir Charles Blois was driving his own boat!

Well I must have been walking around with my eyes shut because I never saw Hot Lemon there at all - were you there?

We were not in the same class as the Greek RIB, I believe it was the biggest boat as well and certainly much better suited to the conditions than any other boat - it would have been nice to have some calmer weather to see which would have been the quickest then .........

IMHO My boat was fine - sadly we broke a saddle on the first leg (it has a reputation for eating Mercury's finest!) and the BOAT made it through without any damage at all.

Under the BIBOA definition of a RIB the Bladerunner probably isn't a RIB any more that Buzzis P1 boat is, but if had done any testing at all they would have brought different props and the battering the first set of props gave the console etc it might have got on a lot better and suprised a few people!

Fair enough Cookee Better luck neχt time then

As far I know from people who raced the bladerunner on the last leg it wasn't doing that brilliant speed wise. Similar (if not slower) to the Greek boat and it was stuffing a lot. This is what I was told.
