Introducing 'Alca Torda' (it's Finished!)

After almost 12 months we have finally finished the rebuild of our Pacific Jet RIB.... Its been a lot of fun, very frustrating at times.....but def worth it......she looks great (if I do say so myself).....

There is a thread kicking about with some progress shots, but she has been comprehensively rebuilt including an engine /Jet drive overhaul, reconditioned sponsons, new deck......it goes on (and on and on.....and on ).......

She had a succesful survey /coding inspection today as Duncan ('Searider' on here) is down with us.....many thanks Dunc.....sorry about the weather

Would we do it again? Yes ..... In fact we will be getting going on the Atlantic 21 project soon......when we've had a bit of a break from late nights in the workshop and the children start calling me Daddy again

We've got a busy week on charter, working away.....so she'll probably have to wait until next weekend for a dip......

Thanks Don't tend to get around there unless we are working that way.....Did some tidal flow /accoustic stuff as well as some filming work there a little while ago.....and have a water sampling run through week after next, but pretty sporadic tbh....

Not super fast by any means....35 knots I reckon.....but as you say....built like the proverbial outhouse and should take a decent sea

Congrats Dan, almost as nice as mine

Ok I'm slightly jealous of the diesel and the jet!

Nice looking bit of kit there fella. 35kts is nothing to be ashamed of on a jet that size/weight. I especially like what you did with the liferaft - smartypants.

Any chance of a better photy of that angle?

PS: Nice name again. If you get a Vipermax, you should name it after the Thrush
