Just thought we’d drop you a line as we are now a little over half way in our trip north to deliver our boat Much Karma to AirlieBeach , and we’d like to say how thrilled we are with her performance so far. She’s also a great looking boat and turns heads wherever we go.
We enjoyed reasonably favourable weather for the first few days of our journey from Brisbane , but encountering fairly sloppy 2m seas beam on around Double Island Point which gave us our first taste of how well this boat would handle off shore conditions. We have travelled today from Gladstone through the narrows and then across 3m seas and 25 plus knot winds in KeppelBay to our destination at RosslynBay. The swell was SE and while some of the bigger sets when taken beam on put my heart in my mouth the boat just loved it. Particularly enjoyable was when we had a following sea and I was able to get her up to 14.8 knots surfing the waves. We are relatively inexperienced with this style of boat at no stage did we lack any confidence in the boat’s ability to handle these conditions and she didn’t miss a beat.
We’d like to thank you guys for your diligence and determination to build our boat to survey standard, as we’re well aware of the problems and hurdles that were involved in doing so. You’ve both been extremely helpful, friendly and interested in ensuring we achieved a great result for her intended use as a charter vessel, and above all confirming we made the right decision when we purchased our Integrity 350 Mark 11. It was good to be as involved as we were with this process, which included the opportunity to visit the factory in China to see our boat during the construction stage and to have the level of input we did regarding the various particular modifications and features that we requested.
We’d also like to thank Allan and all the staff involved in the factory for both their hospitality on our visit and their efforts towards making our boat the awesomest boat in the world!
Best regards from Much Karma Integrity owners,
Michael and Diane Mathers
