Ride in Canada on the Black FAT Pearl

Here is a ride I had on a Zodiac CZ7, equiped with the ICE2 Console, twin F200 Yamaha, all black boat.

On those videos we were going at 20-25 knots, head on in 25-30 knots wind against the tide. The waves were not that high, average of 3-5 feet with peak at 6-7 feet. However there was no pattern in the waves, they were chaotic and especially short in distance between each other. Instead of having a regular chop, they were coming from everywhere. At some point we've tried the boat at 35-40 knots, it was going just fine (maybe more comfortable) but we were drying the propellors at almost each waves…

It's very, VERY good. It is a must for that kind of boat. Expect to break every bones without it.

Thanks for that. It does look to be a fantastic piece of kit.

EDIT: Pictures look like the big ones (I was on a Boston Whaler last night with an F225, same block, looks familiar!)

Fantastic boat. Without suspension seating... reckon you'd be 2-3" shorter after your trip!
