I reckon it must be second hand because you mentioned a while back that you were discussing your requirements with the manufacturer. As that was only months, not years ago, theycan't possibly have built you a new boat

How many careful owners has it had? "Only used for shopping, never raced -- honest"

I confess, Julian and Pepper are correct. Yes one owner, a wealthy chap who owns the castle in the IOW overlooking Hurst Castle. Lovely chap, met the engineer who looks after the engines and they are immaculate - 170 hours only!

NOW, what about the weather on Thursday?
