I must be fatter, or less willing, than you because it did an absolute max of 50 MPH when I was driving it!

Yeah Neil Holmes = respect.

If any of you guys out there want to learn how to drive a fast boat then six times world chamion Neil has a training school in Drivers Wharf he is also an extremely nice guy!

If I'd have had some lessons from him I might not have a bad knee

John
Yes I was very dissapointed with the poor performance you put in whilst driving my boat in the poker run. Not many peope are fatter than me so I guess it wasn't a weight issue

As rogue says its the tohatsu/ phantom with a few minor changes such as the transom being thicker and increase to 14 degrees or so I'm told.

Have met him a few times, very down to earth, talks to anyone, that inc me!!!

Jesus Rouge something we agree on!!

If the boat is the one I think it was at JBT it does go fast, in excess of 70mph.

I nearly brought that cabin rib!!!
Nice bunch of people at JBT.

Regards
