spotted USA Suncoast

We've either re-taken the USA and forced them to paint the union jack on their boats (unlikely as we haven't yet taken Libya) OR the painter got drunk and miss painted the star spangled banner, again unlikely so the only thing I can think of is it's the ex Carr boat, although I cant recall the make, except it was really fast ... any other guesses

Ahh thanks John, good to know he hasn't hung up his racing gloves yet, so is this the original Honeyparty boat re-painted that was pictured last year back at the manufacturers in the US, and I assume this will be the boat he enters the Cowes - Monte Carlo with

Is it me or the angle, but those trim tabs look really small like they come off a 21' boat

It is Honeyparty, the Union Jack is all that's left of the flag that covered most of the rear end of the boat as it was.

You don't need big tabs at the speeds they're running!

Ok understand the less friction the faster you go is a good thing, but I had thought that you might need something a little bigger when trying to stabilise a boat at the speed it runs, so thanks Cookee

Great to see he's still campaigning that boat, is he planning to have the boat shipped back to the UK at any time or will it remain in the US for the next few years

Guess that boat must be the holder of the UK's fastest ever mono hull , as I recall Paul S telling me it exceeded 130mph on the way to Torquay some years back, and the second fastest mono probably is the Silverline Fountain, what you reckon

The official records aren't much help:

Inboard Immersed Propeller Monohull
British 2005 Howard Wretham Gt Britain Fountain Chevrolet 96.07

P1 record - British Speed 2008 Vahid Ganjavian Gt Britain Searex MerCruiser 119.52

The Silverline boat is slower than Honeyparty but I couldn't tell you by how much - it is still suffering from major reliability issues sadly.

Not to sure to be honest... i will ask Mark whats happening with her. he is in work today. He was on about the up and coming races the other day. Sounds quite promising. Came third in the last race (sunny islands) and had a d.n.f at cocoa beach the race before. Bllocked water pick up caused one of the engines to over heat.

Why did the change from having the rw waterpick on the trailing edge of the rudder to the end of the aft running surface? Much more likely to have blockage when you pick up water from the hull surface.

Does he still have a racing fleet of boats ie ... The Buzzi RIB, the Pro Vee cougar and the big winged Buzzi boat, that would be a good marathon boat as it may not have been anywhere near the pace in Evolution but it did nearly win the championship some years ago on reliability

Drew still has the RIB and I believe the Pro Vee - the big Buzzi was part exchanged with Buzzi and that ended up being renovated by the factory back to Cesa as it was originally. He is racing with Miles Jennings now and I think he still has a Pro Vee also in Exmouth - it's a little powerboat mecca in the South-west!

Agreed you have quite a budding fleet down west Drew is almost a fleet by himself, so will you be if you can build some more lovely 34' Sharks

wasn't the big Buzzi called Nemschoff and not Cesa

No!

A certain jolly crane driver and myself went and looked at the boat in Miami for a friend of Gordon's, it had been stolen and recovered and left out in the Florida sun for too long, it would have taken a small fortune to sort it out, next thing I knew it was on its way back to Exmouth! It was a bit big for P1 and Drew did a PX with Buzzi - the rest is history!

OK thanks Cookee,

I got the wrong end of the stick when you mentioned the big Buzzi, I thought you were referring to the boat he campaigned in P1 Supersport and then did the RB in it

I thought he exported both Buzzi boats from the US, did not realise he had done a deal with with the man himself to get the P1 boat with Cesa

Thanks Cookee
