Parker 900 Baltic c/w twin Verado 250

Guys

Seeing is believing and testing is just another thing.

Some time ago I indicated that we were producing a new demo rib. Well it has been completed and on Monday I flew out to Poland for a bit of play. Due to the time allowed the trails were carried out on a lake and not at sea which I would have prefered. I am greatly impressed with the performance of the new Verado engines an ideal marriage with the Parker 900 Baltic . Within 10/15 seconds the rib was in plane and reached speeds of 50 + knots without any great trouble. Amazing how silent this babies are even at WOT.

The rib as you can see from the photos is again produced in all black and suited for seasafari ect

Richard

It was very cold so she would have had to been wrapped up in fur
should I say more

here is another shot and as you can see we are dressed for the occassion
The Gecko's were very useful cos at 50 knots difficult to breath without them specially when the temp was only + 5 degree C. We were quite lucky cos at this time of the year they usually have snow

Phil, it would have been nice and it had crossed my mind (Seahawk 3 ) but my brother Philip is very possesive. Wants to keep the best toys for himself. Anyway there are a few parties quite interested in it so I do not think we will have it for long
