i was passenger in the pascoe sr8 rib, but we were also with the scruffy black phantom and a sea ray spose to be a yellow phantom too but he developed a hole in his engine

pub wise fountain is easy cause its right there, but its shite really, then out under the arch turn left, first pub on left after fountain cant remember name but its up 4 sale... er then up the highstreet round the left corner and turn right so your cutting the corner off the high st to the painters, if u get to other pub on right in high st then u gone to far.. piainters used to be dead rufff buts had a good lick of paint and is famed amongst friends for pickin up er less than attractive chicks in cowes week.. then usually back to harbour lights or waterside (what ever its called this week) for a pizza or a 2 for a £5 meal

Thats what I said, approximately 200MPH (320KPH) in normal day to day use. World record stands at 320MPH (516KPH). I was talking in MPH you were talking in KPH.

Was the black phantom (smart one, not john's) the one that sank at some point in Cowes Week?

The red Phantom belongs to Lee Russell and I think he might have rigged the black one.

I took the pictures of the Red & Black Phantoms last May Bank Holiday from the Ferry Inn at Langstone Harbour slip.

They both looked very sharp and the black own sounded absolutely awesome.

Like a guy stated to me once that an Argo 21 with a GT300 Johnny is not one of the easiest ways to kill yourself but one of the surest...

But back to phantoms as this is a phantom thread.
How much does different Phantom Hulls weigh? I like the XL´s a lot (the red and the black one) but thenagain Argos are the Forte here up north...and Twister Cats.
