Opinion on 2004 Tornado RIB Tornado 695

Hi,

Does anyone own the same craft or know of one ?

If so I would be grateful to hear any opionions regarding its performance...

I am looking to change from my 5.85 Osprey Vipermax.

It would be used in the Irish Sea often in heavy seas so I'm keen to hear how it performs in heavy chop esspecially.

Thanks in advance...

You will find it hard to beat a Tornado in my opinion (although biased as I love my Tornado 7.5)

Build quality and finish is fantastic, and handling is brilliant also

Thanks benc... Think the above 695 would go well with a 200hp Optimax ?
