Re: Ring 25 Sportscruiser

Graham have you got a picture of what this boat looks like. Only its still not on the new Ring Powercraft website. Is it so new that yours is the first 25 they have built apart from the Ranger style?

Re: Ring 25 Sportscruiser

Mike has built several before, although no good digital pictures. I should have a reasonable picture early next week. As soon as I have something it will be posted !

Progress ...

Well the hull and deck are finished and were nearly trimmed ready for bonding together.

Re: Ring 25 Sportscruiser

Graham, looking really smart, have you heard Carl's Ring powerboat (The Jester) with his straight through exhausts? they're absolutely fantastic sounding, I think louder than an Ac Cobra!!! I reckon you will be leaving them switched throught the transom. When you're about come out on mine and we can follow him so you can see.

Re: Ring 25 Sportscruiser

Yes the noice of the V8 should sound great ! Not sure its appreciated by all though, so have the option to switch to a more quiet through leg option.

Re: Ring 25 Sportscruiser

Graham that is looking bloody great !!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Only an idea on the name bit:

Your out in the Solent for the first time - Exhaust switched to straight through mode - You floor the throttle - the V8 screaams a defening roar.
