BananaShark Team E-Lites launch party

Launching our new sponsor E-Lites Electronic Cigarettes for 2011 and 2012 - The Race boat in its new livery complete with the latest networked Raymarine electronics and amazingly economical Yanmar engines will be alongside the bar for the evening with the usual great drink and food available - Book early if you're coming and everyone is welcome!

We will be doing a limited number of demo's to genuinely interested parties and VIP's during the day and possibly on Sunday weather and time permitting - pre-booked only though.

No free beer! :-)

Here are some graphics kindly rendered by Petter Martins in Norway (Scand on here), these are the rough idea of how the boat will look, luckily there is no tobacco involved so they can't ban us from TV!







We will be keeping the interior matt black but producing small stickers for the benefit of the on board cameras.

Oooops 13th August from 6.30 pm onwards! That's what happens when you cut and paste from a Facebook page that has those details on a separate line!

The whole rear end is wrapped now, just the stripes and a few logos and we're done!

We had a fantastic weekend, lots of people got a ride in the boat and the party at the Island Street bar and Grill was also packed - apparently they broke the record for the number of covers in one night! Tim Tapping was on hand to record the event and a bloody good job he did too!





My favourite:





The stripes and the extension make the boat look even longer now!
