Ceasar Thunderbolt

My demo Thunderbolt arrived today. She is set up with a 90hp Etec, 2 Cobra Marine Bucket Seats, 50 Litre Fuel Tank, Nav Light.

Had a quick play in the harbour but could not fully open her up as the wind was so strong. However first impressions she is a very soft, stable ride across a 1-2ft chop, very impressive and oozes power, itching to go for a proper play now.

That looks fantastic!

Interesting throttle position though. Is it hard to get into reverse?

No it's actually a better throttle position than it looks, very comfortable position, I am going to get a cushion made to insert into the bucket seat as it is very snug on the hips.

Etec

Hows the Etec Richard?, does the idea of a couple of Etecs on your new Parker not appeal after using this one?

I like it!

Took it's time getting to you, but must be well chuffed to bits? The last photo it looks real menacing.

So when do I get a ride ?
