New Ribcraft 6.8!

Maximus finally launched Raptor after a long wait. Weather was rougher than expected later on in the day and what a blast...... Superb Fun for both Ribcrafts and some really good swells with some great breaking waves to run 2 new boats in!!

Those Ullmans are something else coupled with the Suzook 250......Yeeeha!
