Looks like good fun and chuffed to hear your old RIB found the right owners eventually - I did agree to terminate the transaction - so hoping you got your pennies back - but if not then please do let me know.
As for our RIB - learning fast - have so far only managed three trips in her all on the Solent - excellent fun and more able in the choppy stuff than either of us currently
Have had hubby wiring up lots of gadgets - much to his delight ....not - and hoping to join in the Christmas trip on the Solent in December - will be an opportunity to see if everything actually does work that we have added and not short out at the first drop of water!!!
Looking forward to seeing how your new toy progresses and pictures of the Pacific 22 once you've found the right one
