I'd be happy to answer ANY questions about your boat in public!
For my view point which was not too far behind the poly boat.. I will say that slippery SIB of Poly’s easily slid into the lead.. in both smooth and chop .. despite a smaller engine than mine. However .. no tins of Guinness burst in my boat .. (that was probably because I had emptied my stash on Belnahua .. sitting around the campfire.)
Which Brand of boat is the best between mine and Poly’s ? Poly’s of course..I would have one tomorrow if I needed to change my own. But that is only my opinion.
Re the green stuff sticking to these boats.. I assume the large black buoys that support the ropes in mussel farms are made of the same stuff ? The ropes certainly foul up.. but even the white crap from sea fowl .. washes off in the rain.. I have never noticed growth on their undersides either.
I will however play devil’s advocate ..and say ..Guinness is THE best brand of frothy drink in a can ..in a choppy mood or a smooth one.
