Drove Wavehumpers 6.5 Scorpion this afternoon around the Solent for a couple of hours. No idea what the speed was as the speedo is broke (hint Stu) but it handled very nicely and if I owned her I would be well pleased. The Opti 150 on the back makes an ideal package. Quality shows when you look inside at the mouldings and overall finish, which despite being kept on a marina birth is still like new, well the bits I cleaned were anyway. Yep nice rib, fast, felt safe and well built, which might explain the high second hand values for these boats.

Charles,

I'm rather late in the day replying, but the 7.5m Scorpion in question was mine from new.

I sold it in late 1999 when I moved up to a diesel.

Braking News

As a matter of interest - 51% of Prestige South Africa has been bought by Ribeye UK - in other words they are produced
now in South Africa.
There is no double confirmation on this yet but I think that you may find it interesting

????? The person I sold it to still had it until recently - I saw it in Cowes last August. The boat appeared to be orginal other than seats reupholstered in a different colour, and well looked after.

thanks to John for not hosting my website.
