Great Pics

Good luck to Alex Thomson (Boss)!! He's a close friend of mine hailing from Gosport and, as im sure some of you may know, he had a nightmare during his last big race as the boat sunk.

Got a guided tour of the new Boss boat back in August and have to say that it looked awsome. Ultra lightweight with an all carbon fibre hull. It was pretty gloomy (and hot) inside due to the bare carbon fibre but he refused to paint it due to the additional weight!!!!

Have you seen pics of the new BOSS boat? looks more like a powerboat than you're little 16 footer and I bet its got a better top end - and before you say not if the wind aint blowing - lets be honest, even a wee breeze will be enough to landlock the average speedboater

I cant say that i have, but my little 16footer scrapes the inside of 58mph which i think is quite quick since everthing is box standard.And aint too bad in the choppy stuff either but i know what you are saying
