Thanks for the kind words Rob.
We are very pleased with our rib after a very long wait. As for mooring just a fluke!!
Definatly up for some trips next year, hopefully with visiting ribbers too.

It would be a pleasure...

You were right about the Verado engine.... It has so much power it pins you in your seat!!. The most impressive thing was the acceleration from 45 to 55 knots fantastic..
