I called mine Rubber Soul

Not sure that helps in any way!!!
Is your Shearwater one of those with a small cabin in the console? Looks a great boat and has a Ring hull so should go well - what sort of speed are you getting out of it? How about some piccies in the Gallery???

Yes it has a small cuddy cabin - not big enough to sleep in ( well not big enough for a growing lad like me!! ) but plenty big enough to keep fleeces, wet weather gear, life jackets and all the other stuff needed for having a great time, permanently on the RIB.

Flat out she will do approx 45 Kts but I'm happy at 25 to 30 Kts @ 4,000Rpm.

The hull is great in steep seas.

A few years back I saw a boat in nationwide boat sales ' chesterfield called

'werafakawi'.....

Probably why it ended up for sale miles from the sea !

Just a thought...........I'll shut up now !!!

Wasn't that the name of an African Pygmy tribe.

It was a schoolboy joke that always got a few laughs.
