Gibsea 282 from Hamble to Thames Estuary

Hi All,

I am recently back from delivering a Gibsea 282 to Gillingham from Hamble. The weather was perfect and we had westerlies all the way to Ramsgate. As we came around into the Thames Estuary the wind dropped and we had a gentle motor up the Medway.

The boat behaved very well. We had little history as she had been bought on Ebay. It was very much a test sail on behalf of the new owner!

For those who are interested here is the video:


With a lifting keel and rudder she will be well suited to her new home in Gillingham.

Pete

The 282 offers a lot of space for the length. A very sensible layout and lifting keel makes her ideal for shallow waters... A lot of boat for the money!
