Swanny - I'd love to ask which one but that would be silly!

Saw plenty in Majorca (the inlaws have a very "modest" in comparison Fisher 46 in steel!).

Has yours got the de rigeur "Williams" speedy rib?

Yeah sorry, not really supposed to say what I work on - but it's not one of the massive, well known ones owned by anyone famous.

We've got 3 rib's (2 x 6.5m Novurania and a 9m Ribcraft), 3 jet bikes, divegear, jacuzzi, sauna etc.

Spent a lot of time in Palma

Swanny - we were wafting around Majorca on the Fisher in August - very pleasant. Some of the boats we saw were comically vast.

Yours must be a fair size to fit all that kit on!
