How TOPCAT LOOKS NOW

a couple of you asked how topcat looks now
so this is her on the water during testing
once i had changed the props and added jack plates she would
top out at about 50mph and lift another foot in the water.
ive since stripped the electronics off and recently sold the engines
the rest of the boat is pretty much complete and im putting a listing on ebay
next week with a starting bid of £500 .Its a shame but my fishing pal died
a few years ago and shes not being used as she should be.
pls feel free to have a look
regards jerry

Yes thought it was, got a picture somewhere of it upside down floating perfectly inverted with RC stood proudly on top ,we righted it and lifted it out at the yard and got the engines running again.
Surprisingly little damage, well to the boat

Yes it went over in Poole bay, it was in the days when RC had the offshore bar in west quay road, Poole , so it was towed back to West Quay Marina, and it was lifted it there. The good old days ����

Yes the offshore was a great place in the 80's and early 90's , managed to move from Cobbs to a mooring there but it went off the boil !!
