New ride - 2006 Protector

I just took delivery of this beast. Wife wanted something more "practical" for her and the kids. Not sure how practical it'll be at the fuel dock, but enjoying it so far!

Gingercoastie had pretty much the same boat in Falmouth a few years ago. IMV, the Protector is the best looking cabin Rib available.

I'd love one. It would have to be a diesel I/B. Couldn't be living with twin Verados.
