Welcome Mike Ring

Hello Mike, pleased to see you posting on here, do you remember making this one for me with the Yellow seats & gold anodised rub rail. We had some fun in F3 ski racing with that light weight little beauty with the "rather special Neil Holmes injected XR" on the back.
Gone over to the "Dark side " now with a cyclone, beatifull boat but nothing ever, ever compared to hanging that little Red beauty out on its gear casing.

Ah' yes I remember it well ........Probl'y would not be so good with all the new motors that have since appeared on the scene. Boats would need a whole new re-think to suit the motors now available and to stay one jump ahead.

The recession of the early Nineties and the slowing down of the sports /performance boat market with the mass exodus to the r.. scene set us manufacturers in the UK back considerably in terms of producing new designs and getting them developed for specific markets such as ski racing and production powerboat racing.
Happy Days ....But its looking brighter for sports/performance boats as the cycle completes its revolution.

Mike.

Nah it just means the market is saturated with old rubber tubs and the buyers are slowly becoming savvy and looking for something new, i guess.

Remember this one - 21E with ProV200

We kept it for 10 years - an excellent outfit

Has now gone over to Ireland.
