Incredible!

Way to go Alan and all the best on this new endeavor. It appears you have lost the sponsons but maybe have picked up on the sponsors...
Good Luck...sirzap...

Obviously, Good Luck with the new project Alan.
As usual we will all be supporting you and following your progress carefully.

On the subject of wave piercing.....
didn't the chap who designed Pete Goss's boat also design a wave piercer for UK special forces?
Rumours had it that such a boat was being tested out of Poole.
What happened? Is it still a runner?

Pete was building a boat for the boys in green but didn't know it was running out of Poole. I'll have a look on Saturday when I'm out.

Did you know about the underwater ribs they had in Poole ( now theres an interesting subject and V. cold ) !



Mark

P.S. They do have a pair of FB boats with turbines which go like stink.

Good luck Alan and have a great adventure.

It isnt a rib for sure and it just showes that they need a planned 4500 hp to do 50knts with Jets and cruise at 40hp when we can do 38knts with a rib running 280hp, So Im not convinced on the efficiencie stakes

Also the argumant that there is less G force on a wave piercer is correct as it doesnt float as much, therefore it isnt going to go up and down as much which equates to less G.

Whether this affects realiability is something to be seen?.

They arnt going to get a better crew who has bin there.

So who is going to be skipper,as I look forward to a real barnie on board.

Good luck and enjoy it.You only live once,So go for it.

It will never be as impresive as crossing the Atlantic in a rib for the first time with nobody holding your hand.

Its the next trip that realy interests me

Good luck and I wish you all well.
