You should chat with that Ribbing turncoat, John Kennett! He's just boaught a perfect 1.3 hardboat, a Phantom 16/85 Yamaha.

Come to think of it, he didn't go anywhere near a rib on the June Poker run either! stayed well & trully glued in the Solents finest 'hards'.

Mebbe you two ribnobbas could get summat going.

As roofer says there's a lot of club racing near you Carr Mill is excelent.

We're bringing our 1.3 etec series up to chase water which is not too far away, but the rest are either in Kent, Cardiff or here in Poole.

If you want to race in a National series 1.3 OCR is for ski boats - Bob Mcarthy (OCRDA on here) is the guy to ask!

You race nearly any boat at club level it doesn't have to be a hydroplane, I used to race a p18 with a 2.5 efi in super clubman and others race p16's with smaller engines.

Frode 1.3L

So which Frode is for sale ? Is it the old one I used to drive for Charles Burnett, a yellow 19, if so I would also be interested in it if you decide not to buy it. As you say you do need to be commited to run one hard in the rough, if you back off in a following sea it will definately stuff, into a head sea they are terrific as they just chop off the tops of the waves giving a level, but very wet ride. Might even consider 1.3L again myself if there was some competion, about the only cheap class left.

im guessing (ohh no) flat out 60ish i mean i know sarah donahu had one at something silly like 84mph but in the confinds of somewhere like carr mil dam i doubt that would be atainable and the boat would be set up more for acceleration than top end. iv been told it would be a little big for inshore where i want to race but i would like to step out and do some offshore as well. like pwllheli as thats where i sail and rib.
