Re: Ring 25 Sportscruiser

Graham Its really looking good now. I trust you're fitting a suitable player for all those speakers.
The inside is coming along and looking very neat.

Picture 2 new not seen before pink bit, now that looks like your roof lining

Re: Ring 25 Sportscruiser

Admire your ability to retain the plot and having the tenacity and determination to see it through.

Considering the timescales, you could have gone down for misuse of a baseball bat on these two clowns and still got out in time for the launch.

Re: Ring 25 Sportscruiser

Well after.... lets see about 5 months and 1 week, the collection / launch date approached. I was fortunate enough to be able to borrow a car from work, and so booked a days holiday and off i went (with brother co-opted in for assistance too) :-

Re: Ring 25 Sportscruiser

Graham its been 5 months 1 week, and its cost you a few bob, but mate, that is one beautiful boat.

The Ring Revenger 25 next to my boat at LM just looks so big, and if as we suspect it has the same hull these pictures again don't show just how big your new 'Thing of Beauty' actually is.

Re: Ring 25 Sportscruiser

The blingy blue grab handles mate they blend in soooooo well.

You can see whats gonna happen now.

Your gonna have every man and his dog suggesting places you can go with them so they can travel in your new ride.

Re: Ring 25 Sportscruiser

Graham,

Looks a lovely boat and now you can enjoy it too, Rumour has it that summer was delayed while it was being built

Robbie,
despite all that you saw in the build pics there is no Pink bits to be seen

what has the reaction been from others that have seen it?

How is the name coming along.....................................

Re: Ring 25 Sportscruiser

That may well be the case but have we seen any final shots of the inside !!!! I am sure there will be pink lurking somewhere in there !!!!

As for a name how about - The Long Wait

Just a thought

Re: Ring 25 Sportscruiser

Well I have completed 4 hours so far, and all is well. Engine running well, and exhausts sounding great ! Petrol consumption !!

As for names probably best to wait until I have forgotten about the purchasing experience else it will be named 'Painful Experience' or 'Never again' !!
