Hi Jake not wanting to drag up the past, how did you get on with your boat testing.

Never got anywhere with it. Been stuck in the far north. Tried to organize a frewza 21 test but no one was able or willing.

Since my last post lock down has finished, the charging issue in the motor has been rectified and I've had my FC 535 CC out in some pretty crappy seas. All I can say is that I was surprised how a boat that size handled the seas and kept me dry. To tell the truth I havent had a good look at the welds underneath and don't really care as long as they stay together. Having said all this, I'm getting a bit long in the tooth and looks don't bother me. I've got a Lab cross for a gun dog. She's not as pretty as a pure bred with a pedigree and she wasn't anywhere near as expensive. Does the job as well if not better though.

I've only got the F18, have heard the F21 is a good boat, but for offshore work I've only been in a 7.5 westcoaster and an osprey, we've driven past extremes and surtees over the manukau bar making hard work of it, those two hulls are awesome

pretty hard to hear ospery is as good as a westcoatster across a bar,  but take your word for it. Maybe in following sea coming in would be as good or better,  but surely not going out.
