Nooooooo, anything but an Evoke I'm an engineer, not an hairdresser.

Two Land Rovers (one military), owned a Searider and am actively looking for an ex-RNLI Y class....



No use moaning about perceived anti-this boat/that boat on a boat forum - every forum in the world has discussions like this - the interweb is just a load of opinions, most of them bollox.

Some people like blue-water boats, some like proper UK boats, live and let live....

certainly a fast growing thread.

Indeed, horses for courses. A Pac 22 to a ribeye! Isn't that one extreme to the other. You may well end up in the middle somewhere!

As for 120hp on a 6m boat. If it's family fun with 4 aboard, picnic and drinks whilst dragging a skier, still think it's borderline. It'll be working hard to pull a fat teenager out of the wet stuff or swing him on the end of a ringo.

What i have found though, is that whatever the make of boat you go for, it's the colour that's most telling. If you keep it in the garage and use it for posing with ladies, buy a white one (with a blue stripe or two). If you think you are the SAS with a blackshadow, buy a black one. If you think you are the rnli, buy one with at least some orange on. Or if you are like me and use it as a bouy, well, pick your meaning and buy accodingly... red or green channel marker, cardinal, etc

Whats good on here is that the moderators allow a little banter but stops proper trolling by idiots. If the thread drifts too much, it goes elsewhere from that point. Excellent work and thank you to the moderators!!

Yep I can live with it & seeing as I have been a member for 8 years now I'm well aware how it works but the Ribeye bashing by some dose get a bit tiresome!
If I really took any notice I would not have just bought one!

Funny one that, Paul. I can't seriously ever remember seeing a green rib. Seen every other colour, even yellowbut not green.
