Please do, as might well give it a go this year. Presumably you have some kind of deal with the gods that guarantees oily smooth seas and fine weather for the hairdressers boats?

Allan,
That's right, any more than the wake from the odd swan or duck and i'm not playing! after all, I don't want to get my platforms wet, or my flaires creased! so I'll just have to hope and pray



Matiboy,
Yeah that was me, Merlin has closed now of course, whole operation moved up river to Drivers Wharf, so where do you keep your rib now?

September 1962 was a good month obviously...I guess I'm 11 days older than Jon too.

lucky to be able to bung it under my parents car port in lee on solent

rember when I was talking to you once that I was impressed with the huge twin diesels you had fitted, wouldnt have been so impressed if petrol

Imagine running twin 5.7 v8 petrols, you'd be Gordon Browns best mate

despite all the ribbing you will get on this forum, you have a boat to die for !

This any good as a project

Forty years of age seems a bit old to be driving a boat like "Leviathan".

What's a definition of hairdressers boat?

I bought my first rib at 39.5........what have I been missing!

I did have an RS 400 dinghy before, that would do 20kts!

Daniel,

if you can drink beer and stand your end of the (no doubt prodigious) fuel bill then you are welcome to come aboard Blue Ice

I would be keen to do a Poker run at sometime during the year. Can squeeze 50knots on a good day out of my boat.

Please post the dates as and when you know.

Cheers

Mark

Thanks for all the support and interest guys, it'll be great to get a few ribs out with the hairdressers, (although as I said earlier Chris Strickland has joined us before in his 9.5 Scorpion + 2x300 Merc's, that is one hell of a boat in the rough!

Thank's Matiboy, but don't let Crazyhorse hear you say that, she wouldn't like it at all!

Daniel, You don't need to worry about being outclassed, if your boat will do 40 mph (and it nearly fits the length rule) there will be someone on the day who's boat has similar performance to yours, who you can run/race with, so don't panic capt mainwaring

David, dare I ask how old you are?

Jon (past worrying) fuller

Alan, Jon

Thanks for both the offers - i'll certianly accept one of the two nearer the time.

I suspect i'll be taking out a bank loan and joining Alan (although i suspect my old-skool 130 would give you'r 200 a run for it's money in consumption terms!!!) rather than thrashing both myself and my boat trying to keep up with you guys.

I have seen 49.something on the GPS in my boat when really trying hard to cap 50 on a dead flat day with just me (feet firmly straped in) - but maintaining anything like that in a boat of that length is impossable once she see's a swell!

Roll on the sunshine!

Great stuff. Looks as though we could get a good showing from the RIB crowd to show the hardboats how to do things!

Daniel, as I say, most welcome to hop aboard Blue Ice. I think you're right, my Hpdi will probably burn less than your carb 130!!

Cheers,
alan

As a reformed "wind-up" merchant, I reckon I should be good a spotting them,(as crazyhorse would say, good post for a newbie) and bill anchore has to be one, I mean, a 45 year old tatooist! surely he'd be able to spell his "hometown" and "boat make" correctly! nice one boy's! (or girl)

And what are 175ss's?????

Jon (the hunter now!) Fuller


In fact I think (due to the excellent spelling and obviouse jibe at me!) that this is either: Crazyhorse or Manos!

So if it's you Crazyhorse, your a bad girl!

and if it's you Manos, your a bad bubble!

Yes, you may dare ask. My profile says 50 but I lied to sign up. I'm really 21. At 40, I reckon you'd be better off swapping Leviathan for my wooden classic so you could potter up the Thames to Henley or Kingston as befits your age Either that or change the name of Leviathan to Tootsie or Snuggles.

Great Gramps, that explains why you're idling away your time on here instead of going out and doing an honest days work.

Will get a pic of boat this weekend.

Errm thats a bit rich coming from someone who debuted on this forum with extravagant claims about how he is going to clean up at Cowes 2003!!! + Falcon first in yada yada yada etc etc.

Speed is good in its place. Bombing around the solent for a day would be fun. Doing it every weekend would be boring. Thats why I love ribs cos you can do so much more.

Besides we need to show the hard boat hairdressers how it should be done..........
