HISTORY: Hot Lemon 6 is almost identical to Hot Lemon 3 which set the Outright Fastest Round Britain World Record in 2000. Hot Lemon 6 was moulded by South Coast RIBS (now Scorpion RIBS) in 1997 with the console, engine box and fit-out being designed, moulded and installed by the first owner, a highly respected Scottish engineer who used her sparingly as an additional vessel from 1999 to 2010. The current owner bought her in 2010 and completed updating where needed including extensive re-wiring, shore-power/charging, electric trim tabs, leg shower, new seating plus new tubes in 2015. She has cruised extensively throughout the UK, circumnavigated Ireland, numerous voyages in Scotland, northern France, the Channel Islands and the Isles of Scilly.
