Shot up to Wolverhampton today to meet up with Roy and collect the Vipermax. Was an interesting journey as we passed a Lorry that nearly went though the central reservation and a skip lorry with chunks of mud and rocks falling off behind. Just as we thought we where out of the woods, saw another incident that must have happened moments before we arrived with a van on its roof and the driver layed out on a grass verge...... Hope everyone was OK!
Anyway I met up with Roy and had a bit of a chin wag whilst I inspected the RIB, is a terriffic job everyones done I must say.
I was a little concerned about the journey back as my Kia has never towed a RIB on the motorway before, so the nose weight was checked and concidered too heavy. The Vipermax was pushed back to allow the winch post to be moved untill the nose weight was just right and locked in this position.
She towed like a dream and a nice steady 60 was easily acheived. My Sportage just keeps amazing me and I must say I'm very pleased with everything.
A very uneventful trip home I'm glad to say, however I did meet a friendly face in the form of "Chris" at a Service station that came over to say hello, what was the chances of that hapening
The Rig fits up the drive with room to park both my cars too, so I'm happy there.
The only little sour point today was when I went to fit the Cover, was a little too snug and will not fit once I have all the railings, screen Etc on. So I have to phone up Bembridge outboards to see if their next size up is a wider beam.
