Ring 34 afloat and setting up

The 34 has at last been launched and is undergoing sea trials for setting up and prop selection.
The boat will be in the solent and around The Cowes area over the race weekend.

I have attached a few pics to show the prototype boat.

Mike !

Looks mighty impressive , long time arriving, but certainly looks worth the wait.

I look forward to a tour in Cowes @ the weekend, mind the Ginger doesn't try to put a Phantom decal on her.

Regards Garrick.

Spent many a long hour working on that boat. Will be a pleasure to sit and look down that long horny deck!

She does look quite superb but the name? Thought it was going to be Overlord? Ah, just seen the name on the back.

Well done Mike!

I hope you think I am either in a different category (Race boats) or a close second!

Looks fantastic Mike!

Think I am just a bit bias cookee having owned a few rings and being a sucker for those classic ring lines No too ways about it, the sterling is a cracking looking boat but a bit more of an out and out racer.
