Bow Up

Nice shot; I'm jealous I'd love someone to catch that much of my hull on camera

And I've done the exact same manoeuvre in Plymouth Sound!!

Went for a song on Ebay with some really sad pictures of it in Brighton Marina.

Hi Chris
Yes i did buy it from a guy in Brighton, it was in quite a sad state when i picked it up, spent a day scrubbing the tubes and hull and it cleaned up very well, i am well pleased with it, think it could do with more power

Don't it love to chine walk, bit strange after driving a pacific, maybe something to do with the 46knts, i did try a High five on it and it was nearly undriveable and lost 6knts.

I am having so much fun with it that is why the Pacific is going to be outboard powered.

there are more pics on Plymouth Yacht Haven quay's facebook page, so i have been told, i don't do facebook so i have not seen them, but there are lots on there i believe.

Cheers
Ian

If you want to swop the engine for a very tidy Mariner 90hp I am sure we come to an arrangement!
