Muy bien senor!

Might have a look at where I can stick some names this weekend, in addition to fault finding the fish finder (Raytheon L256 I think), which appears a wee bit reluctant at the moment to give me any meaningful data...

Interesting boat, we have a 9m ribtec with a Yanmar 315, but with a cabin.

Yours must be quick, bravo III opposed to II and a ton or two less in weight I imagine.

We max out at 35 (downhill)

Wonder if the hull is the same, Alan P would know...

Hey Daniel - that's a very nice looking boat, have always fancied the protection of a decent cabin!

Sadly the plotter was down with a dodgy GPS antenna when I launched last weekend , so I couldn't measure speed (had left my handheld at home as well!). Where we had to lower the framework to get it in the workshop for the tube repairs we'd knackered a connection. I soldered what appeared to be the culprit on Sunday, and it did then spring in to life, so I'm hoping it should work if I manage to launch again this weekend.

Will let you know, but think I'm only expecting 40-45kn max.

Certainly from a quick glance at your photo, the spray rails on the hulls are different - yours curve upwards towards the bow, whereas mine stay fairly straight?

No its not. The Ribtec 9 was a completly different hull to the 10. Tim Wilks prided himself on having a specific mould for each model. I remember one very cold, snowy day helping the previous owner of Magellen Alfa deliver it to his home in St Mawes. I will never forget his question as we cleared the Hamble. "Where will be be stopping tonight?" my reply? Your house its only 180 miles away! we made it in plenty of time and befor darkness. Alan P

Hi Alan,

Nice to hear from you. Best of luck with the current venture.

So was "spirit" a lengthened 9, or is Magellan a shortened 10 ? She sure is a cracking boat. We're planning a round brittan in 2013. Mike did it in about 2005.

Magellan is a shortened 10. The first owner had it built to his total specification and when it was launched it sat to high in the water so the best part of a ton of lead and resin were squirted into the hull. The 10 sat in the correct place..
We have a new start date of 1500hrs 2nd November 2013 fron Europa point Gibraltar. Not sure if you have heard but it is now a race around the world against an American team. we have set up a new website for it www.circumnavigationrecord.com and the Americans is www.oceansquest.com but there is not much on it. Cheers Alan P

Was happy to see that my new GPS sensor wiring worked, so I could do a quick speed test last weekend!

We topped out at 36kn at about 3800 RPM. Had Mum onboard who doesn't like to go very fast, so didn't hold it there for long to experiment with the trim. Will have to have a bit more of a play next time, would have thought it should be able to get to 40kn? It has a pretty clean hull, so shouldn't be much holding it back...

But had a lovely trip along the coast between Bournemouth/Boscombe and Studland - a few pics in an empty Studland Bay below.

We get about 42 knots with twin Yamaha diesels out of our Ribtec 890SX.

Not sure how different our hulls are.
