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.

Allan,

I have just finished reading your book of your adventures in the northern hemisphere. Now I am sure you are certafiable or extreamly brave?

I wish you & your team every success in your new adventure, so it's not a Rib but if it promotes the spirit of adventure, who know's others may try and follow in your footsteps.

Very best wishes & good luck

Excellent!

I'll keep my eye on that. Alan, you'll know the way by now, won't you?

Best of luck.

Richard.

Who is Pete?
What was/is he building and for whom?

Any chance of you taking your digicam and getting some shots of ANY of the vessels you mention?
PM them if you like.

These developments in boat design sound v. interesting to me. Am I alone in this?

Special Boats

Hi Brian

Do you know a guy called Richard Redyhoff. He brough a boat designed for the SAS which was a wave piercing machine. Did 50knts with a V8 inboard. Very narrow design. Every wave they hit the just go straight through it, no going up and down etc. They did get very wet though.

Not as wet as the fully submersable RIB that Delta built for the SBS.
Had air tanks to run the two outboards and at a convieniant time the tubes where inflated under the water and the team burst through the water blowing the crap out of anything or any one that was in the way. Alan P

VSV

The 'Very slender vessel' or VSV was developed over here in the Isle of Man, and from time to time we see a 'civilian' version scooting by - it is fully enclosed though, so no getting wet

Richard Redyhoff's Wavepiercer

To improve stability Richard Redyhoff decided that he wanted tubes added, which we did a couple of months ago, and is more than pleased with the end result. The tubes taper down from aft to virtually nothing at the bows

Good luck and all that

Take it this is not a British attempt, judging by the fact of the boat/crew ( excluding Allan ) and the boat design??

Unfortunatly It is nearly impossible to raise the sort of money reqired in the UK to attempt these sort of trips so we have to de camp to distant shores. But who knows, next time? Alan P
