F.A.O Banana Shark racing...

Just to say that I saw you at the M27 service station on Friday at about 5-6pm, I was the one with the Volvo 850 and red fletcher with a plain black cowl.
Your boats looked really smart, how did you get on at the weekend?

Cheers

Grant

Hi Grant - You should have said hi! Missed the start finish gate on the first lap as there wasn't enough room so we started pretty much last - Graham my navigator tells me we overtook 5 boats in half a lap but I was a bit busy keeping us the right way up so I didn't notice! Ended up 4th Rib which hasn't helped our championship, but we're still in there with a fighting chance!

Thanks for the compliments by the way!

Yeh, I know what you mean, especially since it's got toobs on it.

JW - Whose side are you on anyway!

Jon - 4" diameter at the front, but we had a bit of hassle to begin with as "someone" thought the tubes weren't big enough, but they do measure to be inside the BIBOA rules that define what a RIB is.
