As to the name - VERY sore point - was going to be Grand Slam - wooden spooon would be more like it this year!!!
well i just went out to measure mine.......o er mrs.....and from rubbing strip to rubbing strip mine is 103 inchs or 8 ft 7 inchs overall width. maybe your toobs are a different diameter or something but yours looks lots wider unless it is an illusion cos your seats are narrower and console is narrower and toobs are smaller diameter.... i know my console is wide and the seat bases are lots bigger than ribcraft for example.

fun times ahead i think....

Boat looks fantastic Codders, if you are taking it cruising further West to Milford area in the future let me know, I'd love to see it in the flesh.
As for the name, if I was you I would be looking at possibilities such as:- "I told you so" or "What flavour sauce would you like with your hat" or "He who laughs last" or "Welshmen don't lie" or "Humble Pie" but my favourite would be "Jack Flash" or "Flash Jack" that should go down well in Swansea!!!
I Hope it all goes well for you I think you could be in for a great summer 2006.

Nice one - yes I WILL be cruising quite a bit down your way - got to be the 2nd best cruising area after the Scottish West Coast.

Good names there - in fact brilliant - then again I could always call it
"Oi Mush"!!!

if yours is 8 ft 10 then is no real issue towing to be honest, cos of the shape of ribs it does not really feel that much on the back so you will be fine i am sure. my bmw tows it fine so the landy will be more than ok mirror wise.

not sure i will be argueing whos is widest or longer etc will be just hoping it floats and skips along ok
