Day out on Ian's Hunton

A great day out with Ian (Lord Hunton) on his 'Flying Thoroughbred'.
Met up with the Hunton Sales team Martin & Nicky in their 37 for a run over to Cowes for lunch and a blast to Newtown Quay for a nose around.

Some 'bits of vid'

Re: Day out on Ian's Hunton

Was a very good day out. Glad you enjoyed it too Robbie.

Now all you have to do is persuade your good lady to let you increase the new boat budget

what was even more surprising was how little diesel we used as well considering we were going mostly over 35 knots and nearer 40 knots a lot of the time. Even managed to make 45 knots up Southampton water against the tide!

The whole day and we only used 65 litres of Diesel. Good value for money i think

Re: Day out on Ian's Hunton

Nice videos & pics but the question remains , Rob.

Has the Hunton done enough to sway you into joining the owners club?

Oh yer I can just about afford to join the owners club. It's only the purchase and berthing I have issues with.

Lovely boat though as it handles so well, which is just as well as I was driving between the usual myriad of Solent yatchies.

Oh no we look like an Italian mafia cartel. Great pictures of the boat though.
