Yes - a VS22 - as built by Ross-Smith Marine. (Rod is driving in the photo)

This is actually the 3B World Championship winning boat as raced by John and Tom last year.

It has just been fitted with a 150hp Yamaha and pretty much its first outing at the weekend.

All went well and I'm looking to trying out a VS22 with more power.

First test for me in the VS22 at the end of last week - really pleased and a lot of fun to drive.

Conditions were really good for testing - flat out - but just enough to make you drive and soem choppier water in the middle of the Solent.

I was seeing a constant 66mph - and most likely higher peak GPS speeds - but don't count those.

I'm sure there is more speed to be found with more time on set-up - but as with nearly all my boats it is about the ability to keep up a high average speed. Boat flew really well in the choppy sections and hardly losing speed at all.

The boat rewarded smooth and precise driving and could have played for much longer!
