Yes we had agreat day sun shining, for once, and a nice chop to play in,
didnt give the engine full revs as spent the day running it in, did manage 35knts at just over 4,000 revs so encouraging for a descent top end performance with the stainless 21in prop, wouldnt of managed wot as the
sea state wouldnt have allowed. my poor back took a few big landings .
Well Andy yours should be next, or downhildai. and believe me you wont be
dissapointed, look forward to meeting up with all the southern guys again,
cheers for the comments and advice.
Big thanks to waverunner for all his help, and Jono and Ian at PBS for
supplying me with the osprey viper max and the excellent back up.

I LOVE your boats - get your website sorted and I am sure you would sell even more of them!!! Don't under estimate the power of Youtube either - loads of Ribcrafts on there.......
