New Avon 620 finally arrived

After long awaiting we picked up the new rib yesterday and wow does it look good. Hopefully should go well too. Doing powerboat courses 1 + 2 over the next few days (freee with the engine) down in Chichester with Peter White so might see some of you out on the water.

Really nice outfit - still think the Disco 3 looks like someone's nicked the spare wheel though!!!

Post some more pics when you go out for a spin.

That trellis fence needs a coat of creosote, and the grass needs a trim. Dont take the boat out until the jobbs are done

just finished the level 2 powerboat course with many thanks to our instructor for the two days, Peter White. In total we got 6 hours on the engine so 4 hours till its run in. The weather held out nicely and on a speed run we got 42.7 knots after about 3 hours running. Its a bit over propped so will change that in the near future. But i would just like to emphasise my thanks to Peter White at Seafever who gave us such a good experience.

That outfit looks a bit much for a Disco. I'd imagine that the clutch was shot and the transfer box was hanging out by the time that you got home!!
