Definitely cruising, it would be a shame to wizz past all that scenery (we spill to much red wine going fast!) We are starting from Falmouth and hope to be there on Friday 11th, hope to meet all you boy racers then. Mike T.

RIBase
Very pretty boat, but only the skipper has a half decent seating arrangement. Looks lonely up there, steering, navigating, working Comms solo. Passengers sit sideways on caravan style sofas. Not sure what they hold on to or support themselves with? Maybe they're outside sunbathing?

Poor passenger comfort and safety restricts what is probably a very competent boat to light seas/low speeds.

I'm sure you could always chuck the passengers on the top deck if they wanted forward facing seats. I like how fuel efficient the Paragon hull seems to be, although I do think the fuel tank is far too small to be able to give a decent range. One other thing I like about it is the side doors, they make a great difference when you are single handed. Pity we can't cherry pick the bits we like from the Paragon and the Redbay

Careful! Do you check under your car each morning? I would

Must admit I was a huge Botnia Targa fan as a kid, even cut out the little coupon to send to Wessex Marine but the pocket money wasn't stretching to what they were offering so I bought some penny chews instead

But back then nobody really thought to build a rib longer than 4.7m...

Is that a RIB? Or just a fat rubbing strake?!? The definitions get even more murky...
