It looks like you managed to edit it beyond recognition. Chewy quoted it at 22:10 but you last edited it at 22:20 - it hasn't been touched by any of the housekeepers!

Hey Patrick how's the piranha going for you?? I presume you bought the black one they had? I test-drove that one last year.. A fine machine!! I bought a black 580, it's used as the advertisement for the company at the mo.. I would deffo recommend mine too.. Nice seating layout and very comfy!

but purely for comfort, no doubt you are aware how choppy the solent can be, with 7mtrs
and upwards you will get a comfortable rib and ride, go for a 200hp engine as a min if poss
if you can buy at the higher end, Cobra in my opinion is great and versatile but expensive, Ballistic's and Ribeye's also good, but again think about the length !!!
Think about the RV in a couple of years, think about colour, storage, space, what extra's are fitted... Make a good offer, you will be suprised what will be accepted....

I purchased a Piranha 7mtr, which has a massive beam, and is very stable, fast and comfortable.

If you havn't found one by March, your welcome to come out in ours, we get over to Cowes most weekends..

Good luck with the hunt, you will love it once you buy one.

Patrick

What about a project, a 8.5M cobra for 13k, a tad old but could be brought back to a nice condition I think.

Well, just a quick up-date. I sea trialed a ribeye a few weeks ago, but ended up purchasing
a Predator 660 with 150hp Merc.

Went for a quick play down the Solent Wednesday, very pleased!

Thanks for the advice and I must also mention Kevin Mole and Ed form MRL who both went out of there way to help, fantastic customer service.
Bring on the waves!
