A couple of weeks ago we had the West Coast Zodiac rep Chris by for a visit so we went for a boat ride of course! We met up with Adam +1 on the Columbia River who was out for a weekend sail on his S&S Yankee 30 and did a business lunch at the Puffin Café in Washington.
Chris was a bit sore from playing Aussie Rules footie the day before so Mike took it easy on him with his Bombard C4R Commando, they still went faster than everyone else on the choppy river though.
Some of what Mike calls basic drills ( if you know Mike you would call them expert advanced) were performed and Chris took the tiller doing quite well despite his badly beaten body. He had no trouble going 35mph through the worst of the wind chop in the C4R Commando and at one point this writer looked over and saw him several feet in the air. Go Chris, Aussie Aussie Aussie Oi Oi Oi!
After lunch Mike and Chris said goodbye to Adam’s sailing crew and went for some impromptu beaching ops.
The weather was perfect and good times were had by all including the mind blown jet skiers and other boaters. At one point a jet skier that Chris and Mike blew by came alongside while Mike was on the phone to see just what we were piloting. When we told the befuddled jet skier that it wasn’t a r.i.b. he was blown away that a boat as small as 14 feet with a soft bottom could do so much and go so fast all the while keeping it’s composure in the 3 foot chop. The Bombard name says it all to those in the know.
We sell a lot of the Bombard Commandos here at IBC and for good reason, they simply perform better and go thru the worst possible conditions all the while asking “can I have some more please”. To start your Commando adventure give the pros at IBC a call (503)235-2628 or just shop online for the best possible deal.
