Home at last

Just a few pics - didn't take any on the actual delivery trip - just wanted to get home!!!

Trailer was huge - designed for the big Quinquari 11m boats. Towed like a dream and the Discovery was excellent - not at all gutless since I tweaked the pump slightly,

Rig was very stable to tow - same length as an articulated lorry but 8" wider - amazing!!!

What happens when someone doesn't bother with fenders. I also thought engines were supposed to be tilted OUT of the water when not in use?

Seriously bright blue. Looks pretty good with the white seats. Would have been nice with a grating to finish off the bilge - will have to do myself.

Well done, I bet your glad thats done, its a shame the bilge area wasn't finished and little things like not using fenders can have a serious effect, but hey ho its home now so you can enjoy it.

Quick 20min blast in home waters after putting the boat in for the first time - getting rather late.

Got to say it is a fantastic hull - such a soft ride and incredibly dry - got quite lumpy in a few sections - other boats coming in as we went out.

Notice fenders are quite a good idea.

hey cods


congrats in getting the boat at last. perhaps try those flat fenders and remember that rubbing up against things can do a lot of damage even to ribs so take care. you will probably notice your fuel usage will go up quite a lot now!!

done 40 hours in ours now and loving every minute of it

take care and have fun...
