I think JK should start charging him for all this free advertising
or Jason puts in a take over bid to the share holders. JK becomes a millionaire and the members do very nicely too!

Jason, how many is that on order now from RIBnet folk?
dangers, any news yet, have you had a sea trial?
No sea trial yet. I spoke to Jason recently, he said that they were finishing an 8.5 with an evinrude. They have had problems with the evinrude, which has delayed getting it in the water. Jason's plan is to get it in the water this week and whip over to Jersey on a sea trial and take me for a spin. When that happens I shall report back to all interested via this forum.

Congrats on your new Toy

Whwn is delivery scheduled for and are you going to drive it back across???

I must admit I've been keeping an eye on the prosports 6mtr as our next possible purchase.

Seen a 6.5 in southampton a week or 2 ago and it seemed very flat in the bow area. But looked the dogs B....ixs

Ian and Janho are certainly looking forward to getting theres mind you they're easily pleased for ecky thumpers chaps.

Look forward to seeing yours in the flesh and once again congrats.

I'm jealous

True thers not much rise in the bow but they ride with the bow quite high in the water, unlike a vailiant which rides almost flat and repeatedly stuffs in following seas.

The hull is very deep 23.5 degrees.
Usually Jason will drive the boat back from Geurnsey to Plymouth because the guys he buys his trailers from are based in devon.
Im going to flay out 3 days before and do all the sea trails with Jason to get a feel for the boat. When hes finished ill drive it back to Portsmouth where my wife will be waiting with a trailer.(I hope)

Usually Jason would find a way of travelling from Plymouth to southampton airport so he says he will come wiht us back to Portsmouth if we want. I quite liek that because if things go wrong on the first big outing then he will be there.
