XS700 in the Exe

Hi,
New to the forum having recently purchased an XS700. First rib Iíve owned, but have owned sports boats before and regularly drive sailing club ribs as safety boat cover. Also sail dinghies and cruisers, so reasonably experienced.
Really enjoying the XS700 with an Evinrude G2 225 on the back, itís not the prettiest rib in the Exe, but probably one of the best handling with real world ruggedness over the more fashionable leisure ribs. Itís also quick and relatively efficient, 1lt per nm around 30 knots, and good for 50kts+ at WOT. I often cruise at 35kts as efficiency only falls to around .9.
