Are there any minimum cruising speeds or fuel types?
We're on twins with about 160 hp on a 5 meter-ish with grey tubes and some fancies.......but this is where it is, and I'm judging by posts and speed of reply also.
My call.

Sounds daft when we have a 6.3 Humber OP with 175 opti, but .......

For me personally, perhaps a Delta Dash 5.5
125 Opti
black tubes orange hull
Side by side ullmans
Huge twin elephant trunks
All the IT you'd need

Towable for miles v easily, simple to launch/beach, ultra seaworthy, solid, fast as.

Or a shearwater with cabin, hmmmmmm

Or Goldfish 29 as they're just awesome

For me itd have to be a ceasar thundercat in black & red. Id have a carbon fiber nose cone with built in ballast tank. Fitted impact mat, 25ltr bladder tank. Id have a 70hp tuned tohatsu on the back with a carbon cover & a shiney stainless steel prop.
Trailer would be with rollers not bunks & would have the extra wide beach tyres.

& of course as many gopro hero3's as i can fit on it!
