havent tried editing a video clip before, so bear with me if it gets this clip gets a bit repetitive...Even remembering to take the camcorder lense cap off was a challenge, so this might not be up Pirates 3 standard. Anyway, a few asked for some photos when I bought this boat a month or so back, but if anyone has the patience, this gives an idea of what sort of boat it is, and thanks to those who suggested it might not take long to get to Cornwall. And when it look as though I m standing above my son's head, you get an idea of the angle at which this boat corners!
David, this is son no.2:good luck with the close quarters stuff!

That's fantastic, I absolutely love the 28 Ghibli, the ultimate sub 30ft sportsboat bar none in my opinion.

I'd have one tomorrow if I could afford one. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

Well now Gavin -you knew it wouldn't be long before I turned up! Fantastic video. What speed were you doing? The video makes it look like 50kts!! And yes...that handling, it started with Eivind Amble (Google him for some interesting stuff) and lives on today.

Didn't take CI out this weekend coz the forecast was *crap* - turned out much better and left me on the quayside doing jobs. Hey-ho, the jobs need doing anyway!

Eivind Amble-- designed boats that turn on an impossible Angle /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
