Made the forum jump from SIB to RIB

Just sold my Honwave 3.8IE + 20HP - enjoyably used for two seasons and bought a Capelli 470 and Suzuki DF70 - so looking forward to the promised excellent summer! Only done a sea trial in the Capelli so far - but certainly feels much more than a notch up from the Honda! ;-) :-)

Good luck with the new acquisition. Hope the summer does appear
Maybe see you out on the water some time.

Congratulations for making the transition. Keep an eye out for some cruises to come on later this year.

If this weekend is anything to go by then we'll have a nice long hot summer to look forward to.

Maiden voyage on my new toy

First proper trip on my new Capelli (well new to me!) round Bournemouth and Studland Bays - Great day for it calm see and unbroken sunshine - may it continue. Seems to go very well - quick blast at 35knots. Very pleased so far.
