Few pics of the P28 from last weekend

Had a great weekend over in Cowes / Beaulieu. One of our friends got some nice shots off their flybridge Sealine.

Getting used to driving her quickly, it blew up on Sunday afternoon and being in a larger boat makes such a difference in not having to slow down for the larger waves.

The Keikhaefer tabs are awesome and really do keep the bow down (combined with the bow tank) as otherwise she is airbourne off every other wave!

Very stable at 60 (both hands off the wheel) but needs more concentration when running quicker.

£450 worth of fuel used up for a few hours fun almost made me cry so might be looking for a pair of 4 strokes before long. However the grin my misus had after a final run at full chat back from Cowes to Hamble in under 5 minutes made it all worthwhile!

James

ps. yes the name is cheesy but we like it!

Hi Ben,

Not taken Dad out as yet, they're too busy pottering around the Norfolk Broads every weekend at 5 knots on the Broom.

Must be about time you put in an appearance this side of the pond, I'd love to see you racing here again!

James

Yup all good thanks, fitted some fuel flow meters yesterday all linked into the Garmin plotter so we can try to work out the best cruising speed.

I was alarmed when arriving at the marina yesterday that she wasn't sat on her usual skid...turns out they had stuck her 4 floors up in the rack, right at the top just to see if "it would fit!"

Lots of works planned for the winter but trying to just get out there and enjoy her for now. Need to hurry up and sell the Extreme so I can buy another Opti, these EFIs are killing me!

Just been over to Cowes for the safety briefing and a look over the race boats. 80 litres of fuel from Hamble to Cowes and back at 40mph.

i didn't even notice she was in the rack and i drive in there every day. thought you had moved her to get the opti put on.

Was coming to pop my head over and say hi but you looked busy.

any ways glad she is ok..

How efficent is your water pick up for the bow tank? Popped over the last week and measured it to get an idea of what size pipe to use for mine. How long does it take to fill on that 1" pick up

It's pretty good actually, hard to say how long it takes to fill the tank but makes a noticable difference to the bow altitude within 10-15 seconds of dropping the scoop.

One of my many planned jobs is to fit an LED dash indicator to gauge how much water is in there. The overboard dump comes out behind the front seats on the Port side so it's hard to tell when the pump has finished emptying the tank. (other than the boat obviously feels different)

A minor issue at the moment is that the dump outlet on the tank leaks so the cabin floor gets a soaking as soon as you start to fill the tank! Not a 5 min job to fix so added to the list for winter overhaul.
