Greece

Just got back from a great trip to Greece - visiting the builders of Technohull who I design RIBs for.

This is the boat we spent most time on - 999 with twin 275 Verado's

Adam,
If life is that tough at the moment then I am prepared to sacrifice my hectic schedule in dear old blighty and come over and "slum it" with you in that horrible place!! Looks great, what part of Greece?

Started of in Athens - took the RIB down to Serifos where we styed for the rest of the week.
Took a trip over to the next Island called Sifnos - found a great little harbour which was very sheltered. After some swimming and a long Greek lunch came out to find the wind had got upto a Force 6 to 7! About 6 miles back into a head sea! Then we were storm bound in Serifos for two days as it got upto a Force 8 gusting 9.

Now back to getting some work done!

Nah, can't help it, just don't like RIBS, not "proper" boats. How could you do a fancy paint job on a RIB and besides, where can you "rest" discretely with a lady?

There is actually a double berth on the 999 - in the forward moulding. A bit tight - so probably no fat chicks!

It's not the same, come on, your boat is moored in a quiet bay, the sun is shining, you are down in the cabin area with your woman of the day and the hatch and door are open with a warm wind blowing through and well you know the rest. You can't do THAT on a RIB!
