Planing boat for sure , about 100 hp .

I really liked the Yamarine 56c open at the boat show loads of space and shelter and good performance claims with a yam 100 fitted .
It depends how the ride compares to a rib if its bit lumpy, I need to get a ride in one ,there is a dealer at Rock so shouldn't be too difficult.
Problem is finding anything like it used is very difficult , so will save the pennies untill next year and see how we get on with the SIB in the meantime .

So what are you after next Sunseeker

Johhny would have been pleased tonight a Phantom 21 with an older merc 2.5 litre came past us down the river doing about 70 kts . Chatted to the guy at the slip he had spent ages sorting it out , it looked fantastic, with all racing bits on it , even the trailer had stainless bodywork and 45 profile tyres on alloy rims .

And I reckon the Futura has more freeboard than my rib did , so its well safe

Alloy trailer rims eh? I hear that makes the boat go faster AND reduce your chances of being tossed from the boat by 75%.
