The handling in the rough conditions experienced was fantastic - need to see what the top speed in flat conditions is now! Might need to go up up prop size or two!

Here are a few of my favourite photos from Tim Tapping's shoot - he did a great job from a smallish RIB!

Rooster!











Scary! As you can see from this head on shot, the visibility from a canopy boat can be very good - no problems at slow speed either, the boat runs flat at Salcombe Harbour speeds so you can see what's going on around you with a problem, the high speed visibility is also excellent and despite the conditions we had hardly any spray on the screen at all!



It's me in the middle and Kitten is on the left with Jeremy our other crew member on the right - Graham who I have been racing with for years will also be in the crew.

I see what you mean - the boat has been compared to a Ferrari quite a bit as well - I'm sure a few stickers and a racing stripe will sort all that out!
