Congratulations.

So you ended up buying a rib longer than 6m, with a 2-stroke, which presumably cost more than 6k?

Nice one Jetski. So next time I'm out on the water and a Red flash go streaking past, I'll know it was you then.

*Que sharp intake through teeth*

Well the front end is a Scorpion, middle section is a Humber and the tansom is off an old Dunlop inflatable. Is the bluetack still holding the engine on?



When's your first trip out on it? Where's your cruising ground going to be? From pictures I've seen on here and what I've read in the past Pepsea sounds like a very smart boat
