Finally !!!!!!

Who can guess what my new boat is? Take delivery tomorrow and cross the Channel to Jersey on Thursday morning. Any idea what the weather is going to be like? Rain does not bother me, but Force6 + does! Alan W and one or two others know already, so don't spoil it!

New Boat

Hi Charles

Looks like a Graham Jelly Scorpion Cabin Rib to me. Am I right. I know this because we had the yellow one a few years ago.

I'm sure that's a Fairline Targa 35 -- has Graham insisted that he won't take it as part exchange?

Actually I reckon it is a Scorpion cabin RIB. It looks like an early one (although I may be wrong) because the throttles appear to be awkwardly tucked away in a little cupboard!
