Is your new boat a 7.5m or a 7.4m?
Thanks guys for the input.great response ... type a mail in an airport lounge and all those helpful answers when you land in heathrow ready and waiting.
Well I am looking at a 7.3 a 7.4 7.5 and 7.8 from redbay ribcraft ribquest and Humber. I find it fascinating the differences in the boats and also the different approach to the product they each have. Running for this might just force me off the fence. My only constant is 250 suzukilean burn in the back.
I do feel a cabin would not be quite the same achievement as a sport rib especially as thinking of a charity motivation to help a good cause or two!
Do people do this kind of event for charity ?
