Finally had the chance to get to open water today .

Hitting 30knts+ with ease and the only comparison really is like the mini cooper of the sea ( enough of all this 4x4 rib stuff).

Its such an odd feeling with the wheel 'moving' as the dash is mounted on the tubes. Mostly flat water - but went looking for a few waves at Hengistbury....( much calmer than last time with Avocet ! ) - a nice swell running round there - but the back to back seats are not wave jumping machines that's for sure !

(note the best 'this windscreen is pointless' face...

Looks great fun. I'd like to try the side-by-side seating one day. Our deluxe was factory-fitted with the rescue layout, and the only other one I've seen was converted to centre console.
