Well I drove both and I've got a bit of each incorporated into my own boat but still wouldn't like to comment on which is better! Two slightly different boats for two slightly different purposes!

At 1000kg lighter the Parker was always going to be quicker but dare I say it may not stand up to the rigours of being thrown out the back of a C130!

Nevertheless I was pleasantly suprised at the smooth ride and level attitude of the Parker given it's top speed capability. Combined with the obvious attention to detail and high standard of workmanship you have a truly excellent product there Andre

I would just like to say thank you very much to Andre and Rob for your kind hospitality at the show and it was a real pleasure to meet both of you finally!
