Tornado 750 / Suz 250 at last !

Finally got my new boat. (Ordred it jan for delivery in april)
Got it yesterday, on the water 12.30. First costumers at 14.00 !
Also had to costomertrips to day. Really performs well. Rough sea today, deep V and Ullmannseats is perfect. Wery impressed by the Suz. massive torque. magnificent sound. had 47 knots ( GPS ) with 8 pax and 200 l fuel on flat sea !

Old faithfull Narwal is probably moving to Lofoten for whalewatching.
The 200 opti has run 200 hours without any serious prob. Looks like the 200 is a much better choise than the 225 that blow up all the time.

Regards Roy

After of course. ( Even if it rained and was only 10 celsius )

Anybody know if there is possible to get some aftermarked antiskid-rubber to put on top of the tubes in the bow ?

It is wery slippery and the yellow get wery dirty the way things are now.

I'm sure you can... (that Tornado certainly looks the biz!)

Lurcher recently posted some pictures of his recently re-tubed Humber with quite a lot of bow reinforcement. I think Ed at Olmec Tubing did the work, may be worth getting in touch.
