Galloping Horses!!

Following on from a couple of threads- Cobra Ribs @ Padstow and Stale Petrol. I took my dreaded Cobra 8.0m out for a quick blast on Sunday morning that had got petrol at least a year old. Conditions slight swell and a little chop probably a force 3 and the old tub achieved its fastest speed recorded by me @ 53.8knots without a wobble!! who knows how fast it would go with fresh juice?

I just read the OP and thought the same thing Mick, maybe he should lend us his rib so we can use some of that go juice for him, I've put 50+ hrs on the Searider since the beginning of July, plus a few hrs on the Revenger
