I'm sure that Rick with his very wise and level head for such young years would be able to see the pros and cons of each boat and conclude that they aint as good as a Ribcraft

I wouldn't be so sure..you should hear his thoughts about Grimalkin..but perhaps that's just bad trimming..

I seem to remember you had some comments about bad trimming etc for into the red in Alderney a couple of years ago

I do remember that when we were in Alderney when the grown ups were playing on the train and Rick was giving us advise on the Stock Market trends and drawing some interesting diagrams of how they rise and fall, I do recall the Ribcraft comment but he also added blue tubes hold there value more than grey!

I do remember the young ones trying to lead us astray "Come on lets just go to France it will be ok, our dad's wont mind"

As for the blue tubes that's just wingback seat envy

Actually I thought the osprey ride was pretty harsh but then maybe I'm judging it against the gun boat?

And before Erin chimes in... I was extremely tired when I fell asleep off cap de la Hague in one

David Dodd's accompaniment to a Scorpion Sting! Yes it is very nice, it's got a proper engine unlike the other two...
