I was on the r/h quayside just past town bridge when I saw you leave and then return, Sula looked stunning in all Black on the blue/green water,

Very nice in 'stealth black'. I'm picking up a new 4.8m next month. We're doing the trip in 2 days (Kris Kristofferson in Convoy comes to mind!)

cant really take any credit for the colour scheme - we nicked it off the ribcraft demo boat!

The things that have surprised us (and all in a good way) have been the fly by wire throttle, which is sooo responsive, the garmin plotter, the scotseats and the tardisesque stowage hatches! no chance to try her in the rough stuff yet as for once scotland seems to be getting a proper summer!

anyway, will pass on your regards to colin jambo and keep an eye out for you around easdale

cheers

The hull felt fantastically balanced and the fly by wire throttle and scotseats should mean she is really comfortable on long trips - of which i hope there will be many!

The sun shone on us all week and it was west coast boating at its best. Thanks to all those on this forum who gave advice during the build - its appreciated, and a big thank you to all at ribcraft for their excellent work.

Still cant wipe the grin off my face!
Saw 'Sula' at the Ribcraft Factory today,as I was leaveing.A Realy Nice piece of Kit! I wondered is she for sale,or maybe haveing work done?

Thanks - glad you liked the look of her. She's just down getting a couple of bits and bobs seen to..easier done in the comfort of the factory rather than in the frozen north of scotland. Ribcraft were great and came and picked her up and hoping to have her back in time for end march.

Do you have a new one on order or just browsing?
