Obviously not the Prosport in question as it appears to be moving quite quickly.

Tim Its true to say it wont be very quick but should have a lot of torque .You should definately check out and have comfirmed the supplier of the tubes as they did have quite a few done by a real rubbish tube supplier who wouldnt stand by his warrenty.Why has it been out of the water so much ?

Ive been ribbing for over 25 years now and your telling me you never got wet in a force 9....I was in a force 9 once on a ferry, wagons got smashed the shop inside was awash with broken bottles of booze,the waves where breaking over the bow and washing the lifeboats out of there cradles, all outside doors locked to stop the sea comming in....BUT in your prosport you never got wet...... Me thinks its time for you to get out, for some fresh air.

Oh I did get wet on one trip - 3 times when one of my passengers asked me to slow down a bit - just 3 waves over us and that was it. as soon as I speeded up a bit it was fine.

Remember windforce does NOT always = rough seas - a lot more depends on tide - water depth - wind direction etc. I have been out in a Force 6 that was much worse than a Force 9 - then again with 25yrs of experience you know all that........

Urmmm Force 9?
Just out of interest why on earth would some one with years of experience like yourself go on a pleasure trip in a force 9?
Do you have a different scale to us in Guernsey? because EVERY force 7,8,9, I have seen here would probably drown you let alone "get wet". Mind you i have only had very little experience compared to you.......

ps I do know both sides of the story....
