Brilliant footage, the drone perspective almost makes it look like cgi, wonderful, I'd love to go over & see a run, but I don't do spiders!
Cheers
Take care!!!

Hi All,
Did anyone manage to copy the latest Warby Video. I see it's gone now. I screen saved a few stills off the first one but only got three shots from the latest, before I had to turn-in (02.10am) last nigh, or rather this morning I suppose.

Fingers crossed, Fred.

Just watched the videos, outstanding Ken, the boat just wants to skim the water. Well done lads and good luck Dave on the next outing now you have a feel of the boat. It's perfect but will have to do 👍

I am definitely no expert, but the boat seems to be the epitome of "if it looks right"...

Things that strike me are the very stable posture of the boat in the water, the absolute symmetry of the wake and and the absence of any instability - for example, no "tramping" like K7 tended to. Transition from displacement to planing also seems very smooth. It looks absolutely magnificent !

When you come to a fork in the road, take it

I totally agree with you Rob, the boat really does look "The business". Who could argue with the design ability of Ken, Dave and their team..

I can't add anything to what's already been said, except that I can't wait to see that boat fulfil its potential.
