busy

It' looks like my feet won't be getting dry for a while, which means I'll be having some pocket money this year. I've been toying with the idea of buying a Shakespeare 720 and sticking a pair of Opti'150's on the tail.

I'd be intersested to know what owners think of them, i'm more than happy that they are well made but am wondering what the ride is like and how stable they are in tight turns

ta

ps steve the boat need not reply to this thread

Just nipping in to Peterhead from the Janice platform to demob the ROV crew, then back out to curlew for a couple of weeks. are you rig based or on DSV's. good luck hope you get it finished soon.


Neil
nope, I was in another boat and was cruising all day with yours and was mostly impressed by what I saw. Unfortunately the driver was David Manning and he's too fkkn old and windy to put a boat through it's paces. I was impressed that it did outturn the boat I was in very significantly and that had to be dsown to your hull design as to Manning's driving ability.

I haven't driven or been on a rib for pleasure since Whiteshoes left, I do miss him, so I'd be happy to take you up on your offer. I'll have some fuel money.

thanks stuar

If you mean those sweaty disgusting things dangling off your ankles, they've never been dry.

Stuarts nickname on the rigs is Dai Thrombosis.

It's because he's welsh, slow and a clot.

Bit unfair that David!

I've seen Stuart move quite fast at times

Hi Rogue Waev,

Glad to hear your so busy, have left a couple of messages on your mobile but I expect you have probably....

1 - lost it
2 - broken it
3 - dropped it in the sea

Am on 2 weeks holiday in Kos at the moment will call you upon my return


Cheers
