Thanks all, we as a family, are very excited. We've already booked a trip back to lake Annecy in the summer

Just some more updates from Brig. The boat is now built, and had its first sea trial yesterday, and they kindly sent me some pictures. On the first prop they have test, it topped out at 49knots at 5113 rpm. They have another couple to try??








Getting excited now

Ideally that engine should be propped to get around 5500-5600 rpm at WOT. Ask if they have a 21" Mercury Rev4 to try

A very nice looking RIB Oli. Superb colour choice.
I have just spoken with Leon at Wolf Rock and he has said that my Brig is on the next truck leaving on Tuesday. Should be with them the following week. The engine arrives in two weeks. Exciting times.

What boat/engine combo have you gone for?

We went for the Eagle 780 with a Suzuki 300hp.
The service workshop we use in Poole is a Suzuki & Mercury dealership so it was an engine choice between them two manufactures for us.
