I saw Paul Lemmer on Tuesday. He didn't seem to know whether he should be celebrating the sale or cursing for not setting the price higher!

You should have a lot of fun with that

It was expensive - double the budget I started with.

Its a Hysucat 8.5m.

We were walking around with a budget in mind, trying out a few but they were all slight compromises for what we really wanted. Then we spotted this and my wife pointed out that it was just what we are looking for. I agreed, but also pointed out it was double our budget. One test ride later we bought it.

The decision was made due to the test ride - which was outside the harbour, so we had a real go in it and by the fact that the layout / space / finish / look was perfect. Oh, and the fact that its so fast - my wife screamed for most of the ride, I just grinned from ear to ear.

The things I liked were simple things like the fact you could walk to the front of the boat without a squeeze between the tubes and console. I loved the wrap around seats at the front, the anchor locker, the width of it and the ride. Oh my god, the ride.

It was quite choppy on Monday, but on our ride I glanced at the GPS and saw 56 ish - but the whole thing felt smooth. It got up on the plane quite quickly and very differently to the other RIB's Ive tried. It just rose up flat, no nose in the air.

My wife liked the colour

(oh, and Paul is such a great chap to do business with)
