Trip to Greek Islands

Just got back last week from a great trip to Athens and the Greek Islands - visiting Technohull who I design for. Spent a lot of time in a 999 model with twin Verado 275's and really pleased with the fantastic job they have done. Boat handled superbly in various conditions. Had a lively trip from Sifnos to Serifos where we were based - force 6 gusting 7 into a head sea!

I'm going to be a bit bias! but very happy to say that the boats have out-performed our expectations in speed and handling. Also performance wise we have more than met the speeds required in our contract with Technohull.

From a practical point of view and having tested a boat myself at length - I was really impressed with the overall feel of the boat. I do quiet a lot of boating and have been around performance boats all my life (work and pleasure) and the 999 was very good!

Sorry to be so pedantic but it should be biased - it is a very American habit to drop the ed......

Nothing against the Yanks but we don't all want to start speaking like them - do we?

Oh Good ! The Lunatics are taking over the Asylum…….

When you get your grammar, punctuation and capitalisation in order then perhaps and only “perhaps”, you would be in a position to offer criticism to others?.......
